The famous poet Ki no Tsuruyuki (died 945) had an old plum tree, a family treasure, in his garden on the outskirts of Rakugai (Kyoto). When Emperor Murakami needed to replace a red plum at the palace, he sent his gardeners to take Ki’s tree, but the poet’s daughter attached a card to the branch with a verse asking what she should tell the warbler when it seeks out its home. Murakami was so moved he returned the tree. Inset: A poem card and fan with a painting of a warbler. From the series Setsugekka. ‘Snow, Moon, Flowers’.
