SKKS XI: 1002

Sent to a woman at the beginning.

みごもりのぬまのいはがきつゝめどもいかなるひまにぬるゝたもとぞ

migomori no
numa no iwagaki
tsutsumedomo
ikanaru hima ni
nururu tamoto zo
A secret pool
Within the marsh girt round by rocks
Is hidden, yet
Through some tiny crack
I have soaked my sleeves.

Senior Assistant Governor General of the Province of Kyushu [Fujiwara no] Takatō (949-1013)
