MYS I: 54

A poem composed on the occasion of a vist to the province of Kii by His Majesty, the Retired Emperor, in the first year of Taihō (701).

巨勢山乃 列々椿 都良々々尓 見乍思奈 許湍乃春野乎


koseyama no
turatura tubaki
turatura ni
mitutu sinopana
kose no paruno wo
Upon Mount Kose
All aligned are the camelias:
Gazing at them let us recall
The meadows of Kose in springtime!

Sakato no Hitotari
