Akazome emon-shū 549

Said by someone to be composed on the feelings of Wang Zhaojun when she was travelling to the kingdom of Hu.


michi no tsuyu ni mo
narenishi sato o
kouru namida wa
A source of grief,
The dew upon this road, too,
Is great, indeed, as
For my familiar home I
Shed tears of longing.
