SKKS VI: 646

From the Hundred Poem Sequences presented for former Emperor Horikawa.


urakaze ni
fukiage no hama no
nami tachikurashi
yowa ni naku nari
Beach breezes
Blow up Fukiage shore, where
The plovers on the beach
As the waves break in the darkness,
Cry out with midnight.

Kii, from the Residence of Imperial Princess Sukeko
