KKS XV: 784

Lord Narihira was married to the Daughter of Ki no Aritsune and, when they had had a disagreement, for a while he would only visit during the daytime and leave in the evening; this was composed and sent to him:


ama kumo no
yoso ni mo Fito no
nariyuku ka
sasuga ni me ni Fa
miyuru mono kara
Heaven’s clouds’
Is where you seem
To be;
Even though in your wife’s sight
You do appear.
