KKS XII: 560

A poem composed at a competition held by Her Majesty, the Empress during the Kampyō era (889-898).

戀ひわびてうちぬるなかに行きかよふ夢のただぢはうつつならなむ

wa ga koFi Fa
miyamagakure no
kusa nare ya
sigesa masaredo
siru Fito no naki
My love:
Hidden in the mountains’ heart are
Grasses-is that it?
Most lush, but
Unknown to all.
