SZS XIII: 795

Composed in the conception of hidden love after a vow, when the gentlemen were composing poetry at the Hosshōji at around time of the offering of flowers in the Fifth Month.

憑めこし野邊の道芝夏ふかしいづくなるらむ鵙の草ぐき

Trusting her, I have come
To the overgrown plains, where
Summer lies deep;
Where can
The shrike be hiding in the grasses?

日数ゆく野原篠原夏深し分入る袖の露の草摺

hikazu yuku

tsuyu no kusazuri
The days go by, and
Upon the plains and bamboo groves
Summer lies deep;
Sleeves forging through are
Dyed by dewy grasses.
