GSIS XVI: 911

Composed on hearing that the Nijō Former Grand Minister [Fujiwara no Norimichi (996-1075)] had first visited Koshikibu no Naishi.

人しらでねたさもねたし紫のねずりの衣うはきにもせむ

Fito sirade
netasa mo netasi
murasaki no
nezuri no koromo
uFaki ni mo semu
That no one knows,
Makes me more jealous than jealousy;
With violet
Dyed clothing
Plainly worn should they reveal it!

The Horikawa Minister of the Right [Fujiwara no Yorimune]
