Hyakunin Isshu: the calendar!

I received this earlier in the year as a gift from my wife’s family in Japan:

Hyakunin Isshu calendar

This is a monthly calendar featuring selected poems from the Hyakunin Isshu poem anthology every month and calligraphy to go with them. It’s currently hanging in my office at work, but previously, it was hanging in the den at home:

Hyakunin Isshu calendar 2

The poem featured in February (when I took the photos) is this one:

Hyakunin Isshu calendar 3

This is poem number 35, posted previously here, in lovely calligraphic script. 🙂

Thank you!
