SKS IX: 335

When the Go-nijō Regent [Fujiwara no Moromichi] was angry about some problematic circumstances, Nakamasa was at his residence, and did not present this to him directly, but said to the ladies in waiting.

三笠山さすがに蔭に隱ろへてふるかひもなきあめの下哉

mikasayama
sasuga ni kage ni
kakuroFete
Furu kaFi mo naki
ame no sita kana
On Mount Mikasa
Indeed, by the shade
I am concealed, yet
Continuing on seems pointless
Under such a rain.

Minamoto no Nakamasa
