KYS X: 616

When [Minamoto no] Asanaka was grieving over the death of his daughter, after some time had passed, Masafusa sent this enquiring how he was.


sono yume wo
toFaba nageki ya
masaru tote
odorokasade mo
suginikeru kana
Of your dream,
Should I enquire, your grief,
Would it be greater still?
Saying nothing to awaken you,
Have I passed my days.

Minister of the Treasury [Ōe no] Masafusa
