On fondness for the past, carried on the wind.
|kuzu no ha ni
urami ni kaeru
yume no yo o
wasure gatami no
nobe no aki kaze
|The arrowroot leaves
Show their undersides–in despite I return
To a dream–the world of lovers–
So difficult to forget–
In the breeze across the fields.
The Daughter of Master of the Dowager Empress’ Household Office Toshinari
