SKKS XI: 1078

In the conception of ‘love for someone unknown’.


ama no karu
mirume o nami ni
nagusa no hama o
tazune wabinuru
The fisher-folk harvest
Algae from the waves-avoiding others eyes
I roam-sometimes lost to view;
To the beach at Nagusa-what is your name?
I ask-I pay a call, in my sorrow.

Master of the Dowager Empress’ Household Office Toshinari
