SZS V: 359

Composed as a poem on Autumn leaves, when he was in a poetry competition.


yama Fime ni
tiFe no nisiki wo
tamukete mo
tiru momidi wo
ikade todomemu
The divine princess of the mountain
Has the very choicest of brocades
Laid before her, yet
The scattering of the Autumn leaves
Can be halted, how?
