KYS IV: 258

Composed on drizzle, for a notebook match held at the residence of Fujiwara no Chikako, Junior Second Rank.


katu tiru yama no
momidiba wo
ika ni fuku yo no
arashi naruran
Constant drizzle falls
All over the mountain’s scattered
Scarlet leaves, so
It may as well blow through the world:
The storming wind!

Master of the Palace Repairs Office Akisue

A kuzushiji version of the poem's text.
