Ise Shū 49

In the Twelfth Month, the man comes. As her father hears he is trying to meet her and will not allow it, he leaves, and the woman:


yoru koyu to
tare ka tugekemu
aFusaka no
seki katamumeri
hayaku kaFerine
That you would come tonight
Someone has revealed, it seems, and
Upon the hill of meeting
The barrier is warded well;
Swiftly hie you homeward!
