GSIS XI: 641

In the Eighth Month, sent to a woman with whom he had conversed since spring, saying she would meet him around autumn time.


mate to iisi
aki mo nakaba ni
narinuru wo
tanome ka okisi
tuyu Fa ika ni zo
‘Just wait!’ you said and
In the heart of autumn
Are we now, but
Your pledge and the fallen
Dew – what has become of them?

Lord Ōnakatomi no Yoshinobu
