KKS II: 131

A poem composed for a poetry contest held by Her Majesty, the Empress, during the Kanpyō period.

こゑたえずなけやうぐひすひととせにふたたびとだにくべき春かは

kowe taezu
nake ya uguFisu
Fitotose ni
Futatabi to dani
kubeki Faru ka Fa
Voice weakening-
Sing on, bush warbler!
In a single year,
Oh, that twice over
Spring would come upon us!
