Think of the duck's coat on a clear winter night with no frost (Kitto Fujiwara)

Today's song is unusual, especially because it mentions the word "duck." ``Just think about it. Even if you don't put frost on your sleeves on a cold winter night, think about how cold the coat of ducks in the pond gets! ”. The singer was Fujiwara Kinto, a well-regarded and elegant poet, who certainly agrees with the content of the poem, but lacks the essential emotion. By the way, as mentioned at the beginning, the word ``duck'' is rarely written about in waka poems, and it is probably because ducks have been popular as food since ancient times, so it may have been considered unsuitable as a song title. .
