SKKS XII: 1139

Composed on ‘love at night’ at Uji, when the gentlemen were in service.

袖のうへにたれゆへ月はやどるぞとよそになしても人のとへかし

sode no ue ni
tare yue tsuki wa
yadoru zo to
yoso ni nashite mo
hito no toe kashi
Upon my sleeves
For whose sake has the moon
Found lodging?
For though I say ’tis nought to do with me
Folk will ask, I think.
