Attached to plum blossom and sent to Daini no Sanmi.

見ぬ人によそへて見つるむめの花ちりなんのちのなぐさめぞなき

minu hito ni
yosoete mitsuru
mume no hana
chirinan nochi no
nagusame zo naki
In place of an unseen lady
Do I gaze upon these
Plum blossoms;
After they have fallen, they
Will be no consolation…

Provisional Middle Councillor [Fujiwara no] Sadayori (995-1045)
