SCSS I: 15

A spring poem, from when he composed a fifty-poem sequence at the residence of Cloistered Prince Shukaku.


yama no ha mo
sora mo hitotsu ni
miyuru kana
kore ya kasumeru
haru no akebono
The mountains’ edge and
The sky, too, as one
Do seem!
This is the hazy
Dawn in springtime!

Minamoto no Moromitsu

An image of hazy mountains at dawn
