SKKS XIX: 1882

From a hundred poem sequence composed at the house of the Lay-Priest and former Regent.


kami kaze ya
isuzu no kawa no
iku chi yo sume to
Is it the Gods’ own wind?
By the river Isuzu
The shrine pillars-gods all-
Will stand for many thousand years-
Starting to stir the waters?

Master of the Dowager Empress’ Household Office Toshinari
