SKKS XII: 1136

In the conception of ‘love in springtime’, from the Minase 15 Love Poem Poetry Competition.

おもかげのかすめる月ぞやどりける春やむかしの袖のなみだに

omokage no
kasumeru tsuki zo
yadorikeru
haru ya mukashi no
sode no namida ni
His face
Upon the hazy moon
Has found lodging
This spring, as in those of old,
In the tears upon my sleeves.

The Daughter of Master of the Dowager Empress’ Household Office Toshinari
