KYS II: 138

A poem composed on the conception of showers at a poetry competition held at the house of Lord Toshitada.


samidare ni
midu masarurasi
maki no tugiFasi
ukinu bakari ni
In the showers
The waters seem to rise so high
At Sawada River
That the bridge of boards
Does just float upon it!

Fujiwara no Akinaka (1059-1129)

Sakon gonchūjō toshitada ason ke uta’awase 6
