SKKS XI: 1002

Sent to a woman at the beginning.


migomori no
numa no iwagaki
ikanaru hima ni
nururu tamoto zo
A secret pool
Within the marsh girt round by rocks
Is hidden, yet
Through some tiny crack
I have soaked my sleeves.

Senior Assistant Governor General of the Province of Kyushu [Fujiwara no] Takatō (949-1013)
