SKS V: 163

Composed for a picture of Sumiyoshi on a sliding door in the house of the Ichijô Minister of the Left [Minamoto no Masanobu].


sukigi ni si
Fodo wo ba sutetu
kotosi yori
tiyo no kazu tumu
sumiyosi no matu
The past
We will abandon;
From this year forth
Of a thousand years in number make a pile,
We pines of Sumiyoshi!

Ōnakatomi no Yoshinobu
