SKKS XII: 1111

On hidden love, from a hundred poem sequence when the Lay-Priest and former Regent was Minister of the Right.

ちらすなよしのゝ葉ぐさのかりにてもつゆかゝるべき袖のうへかは

chirasu na yo
shino no hagusa no
kari nite mo
tsuyu kakarubeki
sode no ue ka wa
Drip not!
Leaves of bamboo seedlings
I’d not pluck-briefly, indeed,
Must dewdrops cling there,
Above my sleeves, perhaps?

Master of the Dowager Empress’ Household Office Toshinari

SKKS XII: 1110

When he presented a hundred poem sequence.

あふことはかた野の里のさゝのいほしのに露ちるよはのとこかな

au koto wa
katano no sato no
sasa no io
shino ni tsuyu chiru
yowa no toko kana
To meet is
Impossible-at the estate of Katano
By a hut of bamboo grass,
From the bamboo seedlings dew drips wetly
Upon my bed in night’s depths.

Master of the Dowager Empress’ Household Office Toshinari
