Kanpyō no ōntoki kisai no miya uta’awase 97

Left

あさかげに我が身はなりぬ白雲のたえてきこえぬ人をこふとて

asakage ni
wa ga mi wa narinu
shirakumo no
taete kikoenu
hito o kou tote
In the morning light
I have become
A cloud of white that
Says, endlessly, that
I do love you.

188

Right

ちかけれど人め人めをもるころは雲井はるけき身とやなりなん

chikakeredo
hitome hitome o
moru koro wa
kumoi harukeki
mi to ya narinan
Close by, they are, yet
When against prying, prying eyes
I would be on guard,
Completely cloudless
Could I appear?
