GSS X: 628

When he had been visiting someone for a while, but it had been difficult to meet, he attached this to something and sent it to her:


kurenu tote
nete yukubeku mo
aranaku ni
tadoru tadoru mo
kaFeru masareri
It is dark, yet
To go to you and sleep
Is not possible, so
I wander round and round –
Better to go home!

Ariwara no Narihira
