Sanekata Shū 250

When I had begun speaking to the Junior Assistant Handmaid, and our relationship was a great secret.

忍び音も苦しきものをほととぎすいざ卯の花のかげにかくれむ

sinobine mo
kurusiki mono wo
Fototogisu
iza u no Fana no
kage ni kakuremu
A whispered secret night together
Is wretched, indeed, so
Cuckoo,
Let us, in the summer snow blooms’
Shade, find shelter.
