During the reign of Retired Emperor Horikawa, when he offered a hundred poem sequence, he composed this in the conception of the beginning of Spring.

こほりゐし志賀の唐崎うちとけてさゞ波よする春風ぞふく

koFori wisi
siga no karasaki
utitokete
sazanami yosuru
Faru kaze zo Fuku
Once ice-locked,
Around Kara Cape in Shiga
There is a melting and
The wavelets lap
With the blowing breeze of Spring.

Minister of the Treasury [Ōe no] Masafusa
