SKKS XIV: 1285

From the Poetry Contest in 1500 Rounds.

ならひこしたがいつはりもまだしらでまつとせしまの庭のよもぎふ

naraikoshi
ta ga itsuwari mo
mada shirade
matsu to seshi ma no
niwa no yomogyu
The way of the world-
Lies-no one had
Yet told me, and
While I have been waiting,
My garden’s become all overgrown.

The Daughter of Master of the Dowager Empress’ Household Office Toshinari
