GSS XX: 1420

Someone died and she missed him constantly; when she went to sleep thinking of him she dreamed of him and sent this poem to someone else thinking of him.

時の閒もなぐさめつらん覺めぬ閒は夢にだに見ぬ我ぞ悲しき

toki no ma mo
nagusameturan
samenu ma Fa
yume ni dani minu
ware zo kanasiki
For only a moment
Was I consoled
When I closed my eyes;
Unable to meet in him in dreams
I am sunk in sadness.

The Daughter of Lord [Fujiwara no] Harukami
