KYS VII: 399

Composed in the conception of Love at the Poetry Competition at Lord [Fujiwara no] Saneyuki’s house.


itu to naku
koFi ni kogaruru
wa ga mi yori
tatu ya asama no
keburi naruran
There is no end
To my yearning flames of love
From my breast
Rising as does Asama’s
Smoke, I feel.

Minamoto no Toshiyori
