SKKS XV: 1336

From the Minase 15 Love Poem Poetry Competition.

しろたへの袖のわかれにつゆおちて身にしむいろの秋風ぞふく

shirotae no
sode no wakare ni
tsuyu ochite
mi ni shimu iro no
aki kaze zo fuku
White mulberry cloth,
My sleeves, on parting
Are splashed with dew,
Staining my breast, this hue
Is carried on the gusting autumn wind.

Fujiwara no Sada’ie
藤原定家
