Fujiwara no Ietaka
Fujiwara no Ietaka (藤原 家隆, 1158 – May 5, 1237) was an early Kamakura period Japanese waka poet. Several of his poems are included in the Shin Kokin Wakashū. He was related by marriage to Jakuren, which made him strongly connected to the network of poets of the time. He was a pupil to Fujiwara no Shunzei.
Ietaka was involved in a number of poetic matches and has a personal collection Collection of Jeweled Songs (玉吟集 gyokuginshū).
Whose promises of love were they
That brought this end?
Fair clouds from yesterday
By the cold mountain's breath.
