SKKS XI: 1004

Seeing the handmaid who had served the daughter of Major Captain of the Left Asateru, one of the Gosechi Dancers, he sent this to her:


ama tsu sora
toyo no akari ni
mishi hito no
nao omokage no
shiite koishiki
Among Heaven’s skies
At the dawn of fertility
Did I see a lady?
Still is her face
Dear to me beyond bearing.

Former Major Councillor Kintō (966-1041)
