SZS XVI: 981

Composed when he composed a large number of poems about the moon.


sazanami ya
kunitumikami no
Furuki miyako ni
tuki Fitori sumu
Wavelets have washed
The guardian god
Chilling his heart, for
At the ancient capital
The solitary moon shines clear.

The Hosshōji Lay Priest and Former Chancellor and Palace Minister
