SZS VII: 484

Composed in the conception of parting when she took part in a hundred-poem sequence.

限あらむ道こそあらめ此世にて別るべしとは思はざりしを

kagiri aramu
miti koso arame
kono yo nite
wakarubesi to Fa
omoFazarisi wo
There must be an end
On this path, I know;
But in this world
That we should part-
That I had not thought.

Jōsaimon’in no Hyōe
