Love 62

Left (Tie).


wasureji no
chigiri uramuru
furusato no
kokoro mo shiranu
matsumushi no koe
Never to forget,
He vowed – how hateful!
Around my aged home,
All unknowing of my heart,
The pine crickets sing their song…


Right (Tie).


konu hito o
matsuo no ura no
yūnagi ni

yaku ya moshio no
mi mo kogaretsutsu
For one who fails to come,
I pine; within the bay of Matsuo
In the evening calm,
Burns seaweed salt,
As does my breast with longing.
