照射する端山が裾のした露や入るより袖のかくしほるらん

tomosi suru
Fa yama ga suso no
sita tuyu ya
iru yori sode no
kaku siForuran
Lantern-bearing,
In the mountains’ hem, from
The dew below –
Since he entered, are his sleeves
As drenched as mine, I wonder?

Master of the Dowager Empress’ Household Office [Fujiwara no] Toshinari
