SKKS XVI: 1556

On the moon by the sea, for a poetry match held at the Poetry Office.


waka no ura ni
tsuki no deshio no
sasu mama ni
yoru naku tsuru no
koe zo kanashiki
Above the Bay of Waka
The moon emerges and upon Deshio
As it shines
At night the crying cranes’
Calls are sad, indeed.

Former Major Archbishop Jien
