SCSS IV: 267

On the moon at a mountain retreat, for a Fifty Poem Sequence at the residence of the Lay Priest Prince of the Second Order.


matsu no to o
oshiakegata no
yamakaze ni
kumo mo kakaranu
tsuki o miru kana
Upon my pinewood door
Pushes at the break of dawn
A breeze from off the mountains, so
Unencumbered by the clouds
Do I see the moon!

Ietaka, Senior Third Rank
