SZS I: 74

Composed as a poem on blossom, when he held a poetry match.


woFatuse no
Fana no sakari wo
kasumi ni magaFu
ne no sirakumo
When at Hatsuse
Across the blossoms’ profusion
I cast my gaze
Entangled in haze are
The clouds of white upon the peak.

Senior Assistant Governor-General of Dazai, Shige’ie
