SKKS IX: 883

When Cloistered Prince Shukaku ordered him to compose a fifty poem sequence.


tare to shimo
shiranu wakare no
kanashiki wa
matsura ga oki o
izuru funabito
Who that is
I know not, but parting’s
Sadness strikes
On the offing at Matsura where
He departs on his boat…  

Lord Fujiwara no Takanobu
