SKKS XII: 1116

Composed on ‘love in the evening’.


moshio yaku
ama no iso ya no
yû keburi
tatsu na mo kurushi
omoi taenade
Seaweed-salt burning,
From fisher-folks’ huts upon the rocky shore
In the evening smoke
Rises-painful to lose my good name, yet
I cannot bear this longing.

Fujiwara no Hideyoshi
