Fubokushō II: 380


kimi ni to si
uguFisu no
hana no kusige mo
For my Lady did
I fondly think, so
The warbler’s
Comb box of blossom
I do not regret at all…


It is said that she composed this poem and sent it, together with some budding scarlet plum blossom to the residence of the Kujō Lady of the Bedchamber when Her Highness held a little box match.
