FGS III: 282

In a hundred poem sequence which he presented to the Hiyoshi Shrine.


haru fukaki
nodera tachikomuru
tsutsumi nokoseru
kane no oto kana
Deep in springtime
All around a temple ‘mong the meadows arises
Evening haze,
Lingering to envelop
The tolling of the bell!

Former Major Archbishop Jichin [Jien]

A Buddhist temple in the evening light.
