Topic unknown.

しるといへば枕だにせでねし物をちりならぬなのそらにたつらむ

siru to iFeba
makura dani sede
nesi mono wo
tiri naranu na no
sora ni taturamu
They have ears, ’tis said, so
Even the pillow we put aside
When we slept together, yet
Not dust motes, but gossip
Rises to the skies.

Ise
伊勢

KKS XIII: 645

Once when Lord Narihira had gone into the province of Ise, he met in great secrecy with the lady serving as shrine priestess; on the following day, while he was thinking about how he had no way to send to her, this arrived from her.

君や來し我や行きけむ思ほえず夢かうつつか寢てかさめてか

kimi ya kosi
ware ya yukikemu
omoFoezu
yume ka ututu ka
nete ka samete ka
Did you come
Or I go?
I know not;
Was it dream or truth?
Sleeping or waking?
