From the series, "Hyakunin Isshu Uhaka E Setsu" (One Hundred Peoms by One Hundred Poets as Explained by the Nursemaid) Poem by Kiyohara no Fukayofu. "Short Summer Night, Scarcely has the twilight ended when the dawn rushes in. Where so soon among the clouds can the moon find a place to sleep?" ... According to the reference book, this series was not very popular and was cancelled in the mid way. It was not because of the lack of artistic merit but many of the designs and the accompanying poems had no apparent common relations. Consequently, not many impressions were pulled from the original blocks of this series.
