SZS XV: 937

Remembering a man from whom she had parted long before, she sent this to him to say that her feelings had not been transient.

年ふれど憂き身はさらに変らじをつらさも同じつらさなるらん

tosi Furedo
ukimi Fa sara ni
kawarazi wo
turasa mo onazi
turasanaruran
The years have gone by, yet
In my desolation still
Am I unchanged, but
Cruelty is the same
As it ever was!
