SZS IV: 256

Composed when a hundred poem sequence was presented to His Majesty, during the reign of Former Emperor Horikawa.


samazama ni
kokoro zo tomaru
miyagino no
Fana no iroiro
musi no kowegowe
So many things
Do rest within my heart:
On Miyagi plain
The multicoloured blossom and
The insects’ songs.

Minamoto no Toshiyori

This poem is also Horikawa hyakushu 1400.
