SSIS X: 726

Composed at the Kameyama mansion, in the Eighth Month, Kenji 2 [September 1276], when the first topic announced was ‘the colour of pines floating on a pond’.


ikemizu ni
matsu no chitose o
kimi ni futatabi
au ga ureshiki
In the pond waters
The pine’s thousand years
Are reflected, yet
Once more, my Lord,
To meet you brings me joy!

The Regent and Former Prime Minister
