SIS XI: 622

From the Poetry Match held during the reign of the Tenryaku Emperor.

しのぶれど色にいでにけりわが恋は物や思ふと人のとふまで

sinoburedo
iro ni idenikeri
wa ga koFi Fa
mono ya omoFu to
Fito no toFu made
I kept it secret, yet
Passion will reveal itself!
So of my love,
‘What is it troubles you so?’
Do folk enquire…

Taira no Kanemori

A kuzushiji version of the poem's text.
