MYS IV: 741

Still another fifteen poems sent by Yakamochi, Lord Ōtomo, to the Elder Maiden of Sananoue.

夢の逢ひは苦しかりけりおどろきて掻き探れども手にも觸れねば

ime nö api pa
kurusikarikeri
odorokite
kakisaguredömo
te ni mo fureneba
Meeting in dreams
Is painful indeed.
Starting awake
And reaching out,
The questing hand finds nothing.
