FGS IV: 410

On summer trees, when His Majesty, the Former Emperor, ordered him to produce a thirty poem sequence.


niji no tatsu
fumoto no sugi wa
kumo ni kiete
mine yori haruru
yūdachi no ame

Cedars in the foothills,
Vanishing in the clouds
Clearing from the peaks,
With an evening shower of rain.
