愛國百人一首ゑはがき:平野国臣

aogumo

青雲のむかふす極すめらぎの御稜威かがやく御代になしてむ
aogumo no mukafusu kiwami sumeragi no miitsu kagayaku miyo ni nashiten
on the far horizon blue clouds expand: so may the brightness of his majesty’s reign extend forever

Hirano Kuniomi (平野国臣, 1828-1864) was a warrior from southern Japan involved in several coup attempts during the Bakumatsu; a proponent of the Sonnō jōi exclusionist platform, he was executed at 36. Two personal poetry anthologies of his work survive: Hirano Kuniomi Kashū (平野国臣歌集) and Reigo Shōkō (囹圄消光), a compilation of poetry written while he awaited execution.
