GSS XV: 1119

When the Kyōgoku Lady of the Bedchamber became a nun and, saying she wished for him to administer her vows, came over to the Ninna Temple.


Fitori nomi
nagamete tosi wo
furu sato no
aretaru sama wo
ika ni miruran
All alone
Have I gazed these years
Past upon my retreat’s
Ruined appearance, but
How must it appear within your sight?

Prince Atsumi
