SKKS I: 38

When he composed a fifty poem sequence for the Monk Prince Shukaku.

春のよの夢のうきはしとだえしてみねにわかるゝよこ雲のそら

haru no yo no
yume no uki hashi
todaeshite
mine ni wakaruru
yokogumo no sora
A Spring night’s
Floating bridge of dreams
Is broken –
Split by the peaks,
The long clouds trail across the sky.
