SKKS X: 932

A travel poem for a fifty poem sequence composed for the Monk-Prince Shukaku.


natsukari no
ashi no karine mo
aware nari
tamae no tsuki ni
akegata no sora
Reaped in summer are
The reeds for my brief night’s sleep:
’ Tis sad, indeed:
The moon at Tamae
In the dawning sky.

Master of the Dowager Empress’ Household Office Toshinari
