Love 75

Left.

たのめおきし後瀬の山の一ことや戀を祈りの命なりける

tanomeokishi
nochise no yama no
hito koto ya
koi o inori no
inochi narikeru
Clinging to
Nochise Mountain;
In a single word from you
Lies all my hopes of love –
All that does sustain me!

Right.

形見こそあだの大野ゝ萩の露うつろふ色はいふかひもなし

katami koso
ada no ôno no
hagi no tsuyu
utsurou iro wa
iu kai mo nashi
This keepsake
Is now my foe: in Ôno
The bush clover with the dew
Does pale in hue, and
Lamenting it does no good, at all!
