Ise Shū 8

On the way back, she lodged at place called Koshibe. Remembering how the temple had moved her, she composed:


mi mo Fatezu
sora ni kienade
kagiri naku
itoFu uki yo ni
mi no kaFerikuru
Cut short,
I will not vanish into the skies;
No end to
The loathsome, hurtful world to which
I am returning.

to herself, and shed so many tears she had to wring out her sleeves.
