SKKS XV: 1389

From the Poetry Contest in 1500 Rounds.

あはれなりうたゝねにのみ見しゆめの長きおもひにむすぼゝれなん

aware nari
utatane ni nomi
mishi yume no
nagaki omoi ni
musuborenan
’Tis sad, indeed!
Just in fitful doze
A dream I glimpsed, yet
In long thoughts of love
Am I entangled.

Master of the Dowager Empress’ Household Office Toshinari
藤原俊成
