Sanekata Shū 189

A fan owned by His Highness, the Crown Prince, had upon it a picture of a cuckoo in flight across Mount Kurahashi, and when many people sent poems to accompany it:


satuki yami
kuraFasiyama no
obotukanaku mo
nakiwataru kana
In the Fifth Month’s gloom,
On Kurahashi Mountain
A cuckoo
Cries out.
