MYS IV: 524

[One of] three poems sent to Lady Ōtomo of Sakanoue by Fujiwara no Maro, the Master of the Capital Offices.

蒸し衾なごやが下に伏せれども妹とし寢ねば肌し寒しも

mushibusuma
nagoya ga sita ni
puseredomo
imo to si ineba
pada si samusi mo
My ramie cloth bedding is
Soft, and beneath it
I lie, yet
My love, I sleep without you, so
My skin does feel the chill….
