SIS VIII: 443

Sent to the home of the Palace Lady Sakon, on the day after the assignment of offices.

年ごとに絶えぬ涙や積もりつゝいとど深くは身を沈むらん

tosi goto ni
taenu namida ya
tumoritutu
itodo Fukaku Fa
mi wo sidumuran
Every single year
Unbearable tears
Well up;
How much lower
Can I sink, I wonder?

Kiyowara no Motosuke
