The Five Kasen's Splendor: Suikou

Mine dwelling was far from the wider world, but for my fame my peace was disturbed.
In blue-clad I went before Tenshukaku to present our work, but Aoi's work was missing a page.
I knelt and begged for divine wrath to be stilled, and I told what I knew of how it was lost.
The previous night I had been drunk, and then a person's shadow had passed over me.
Some treacherous scoundrel must have stolen the poem, leading to my great loss of face.


  • The Chinese text is in the form of 7-character pailü.

  1. 草庵 lit. "thatched cottage" is a self-mocking literary term for shabby houses for poor people, especially monks (and by a broader extent, deity's followers).
  2. 葵稿 lit. "Aoi's manuscripts", and 青诗 lit. "blue poems", are repetitions of the same meaning (Aoi's manuscripts of poems).
  3. 泥首 lit. "to have one's head stained with mud" is a literary term for kowtow, a form of Eastern etiquette where one kneels and bows so low as to have one's head touching the ground, and is used to show one's utmost apology.
  4. 御堂上 lit. "higher than the floor of the palace" is a honorific literary term for the emperor.
