Mr. Michizane Sugawara had a lingering fondness for Kyoto. He wrote this now famous poem before his depature from that city as he gazed on a flowering plum tree in his garden.

"If the spring wind blows
plum flower
please deliver the fragrance
of your flowers.
Do not forget spring is coming
even though I won't be home."
