Born in AD 954, the nobleman Fujiwara no Yoshitaka’s poetry appeared in 12 imperial poetry anthologies. He died of smallpox at the age of 20, leaving a son who became a famous calligrapher. Here he is deep in thought about a woman with whom he has fallen in love and who has changed his whole outlook on life. Before they met, he was happy to die but now he is loathe to leave her.
