SIS XIII: 847

For a woman he had been visiting for many years; when snow was falling:

三吉野の雪にこもれる山人もふる道とめて音をや泣くらん

miyosino no
yuki ni komoreru
yamabito mo
Furu miti tomete
ne wo ya nakuran
In fair Yoshino
Sealed in by snow,
A mountain man:
Searching out paths past,
I wonder does he, too, weep aloud?

Minamoto no Kage’akira
