SZS VII: 497

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

別れても心へだつな旅ごろも幾重かさなる山路なりとも

wakarete mo
kokoro Fedatu na
tabigoromo
ikuwe kasanaru
yamadi naritomo
We may part, yet
Let us not be strangers;
Journey clothes
Place layer on layer,
Though mountain paths lie in-between.

Fujiwara no Sada’ie
藤原定家
