Sanekata Shū 30

Said to me by the same Middle Captain, on returning a pillow box which I had forgotten and left in the palace guardroom:

あくまでも見るべきものを玉くしげ浦島の子やいかゞ思はむ

aku made mo
mirubeki mono wo
tamakusige
urasima no ko ya
ikaga omoFamu
Oh, how satisfying to open
And look within this
Jewelled box, but
The lad from Urashima,
What might he have thought?
