SIS XIV: 891

His Majesty had something made in the shape of Mt Fuji, and sent it with this poem to the Lady of the Wisteria Pavilion.


yo no Fito no
woyobanu mono Fa
Fuzi no ne no
kumowi ni takaki
A man of the mundane world
Can never reach so far:
Around the peak of Fuji
The clouds rise higher
As does my passion for you.

The Tenryaku Emperor [Emperor Murakami]
