SKKS XIII: 1153

In a hundred poem sequence.

あふことをけふまつがえのたむけ草いくよしほるゝそでとかはしる

au koto o
kyo matsu ga e no
tamukegusa
iku yo shioruru
sode to ka wa shiru
For a meeting until
Today I pine branches
Beribboned with travellers’ prayers;
How long with soaking
Sleeve must I be-do you know?

Princess Shokushi
式子内親王
