Sanekata Shū 313

Composed afterwards, on feelings while waiting for the moon to rise at Ide.

もろともに待つべき月を待たずしてひとりも空をながめけるかな

morotomo ni
matubeki tuki wo
matazusite
Fitori mo sora wo
nagamekeru kana
Together
Should we have awaited the moon, yet
I could not;
In solitude upon the skies
Did you bend your gaze?
