Sanekata Shū 82

A letter which I had sent to the same lady was shown by her to Lady Koma; despite this I heard that she was spreading spurious gossip about me.

こまにやはまづ知らすべきまこも草まこととおもふ人もこそあれ

koma ni ya Fa
madu sirasubeki
makomogusa
makoto to omoFu
Fito mo koso are
A nag: should she be
Informed early of one’s
Wild oats?
Her oath is sooth for
Some folk!
