SIS XII: 728

When he had just started talking with a woman, difficulties arose and he became unable to visit her; so, he sent this poem.


kakarade mo
ari ni si mono wo
sirayuki no
Fito Fi mo Fureba
masaru wa ga koFi
If it be so,
Then so be it, I thought once, but
As white snow falling,
With the passing day
My yearning grows ever stronger.

Ariwara no Narihira
