SKKS XI: 1011

Sent to a woman with whom he had been exchanging letters, when he heard that a superior in the same office had been visiting her.

白雲の峰にしもなどかよふらんおなじ三笠の山のふもとを

shirakumo no
mine nishimo nado
kayouran
onaji mikasa no
yama no fumoto o
These clouds of white,
Why do they cluster ‘round the peak?
Coming and going
From the selfsame Mikasa
Mountain’s foot…

Fujiwara no Yoshitaka (954-974)
