SZS XI: 693

Composed in the conception of secret love for a hundred poem sequence when the Chancellor was Minister of the Right.

あさましやおさふる袖のしたくぐる涙のすゑを人や見つらん

asamasi ya
osaFuru sode no
sitakuguru
namida no suwe wo
Fito ya mituran
How surprising!
My wave-dashed sleeves:
Below them dive
All of my tears, but
Will she see them, I wonder…
