GSS XI: 779

When she felt that a man’s feelings were becoming more and more chilly:

心からうきたる舟に乘りそめて一日も涙に濡れぬ日ぞなき

kokoro kara
ukitaru Fune ni
norisomete
FitoFi mo nami ni
nurenu Fi zo naki
Upon my breast
Floats a boat of heartbreak
And I have just embarked;
There’s not a single day when waves
Do not soak my sleeves.
