Kanshi poet through the end part of the Edo period and the Meiji era.
Kozan was born in Ohmi Province (Now Shiga Prefecture) in 1814.
He learned poetry and others under Yanagawa Seigan and Fujimori Koan.
Kozan served Yoshida Domain in Mikawa Province, though, he was confined because of the Ansei Suppression by Tokugawa Shogunate.
After the Meiji Restoration in 1868, he worked for the Meiji Government as a government clerk, however, he resigned the job soon.
After that, he flourished as a poet.
Kozan died on April 10th of 43th year of the Meiji era at the age of 97.
The scroll is slightly foxed overall as it was drawn years ago.
There are spots, stains, folds and amotions.
As a whole, the condition of this scroll is so-so.
A Kanji poem is written in good form.
(We could not understand the meaning of the poem in whole, sorry.)
