Sent to Lady Michinokuni, in service to the Lay Priestess and Princess of the First Order (Shūshi (996-1049)).


okuyama no
maki no Fa sinogi
Furu yuki no
itu toku besi to
mienu kimi kana
In the mountains’ heart are
Pine needles weighed down
By fallen snow which
Will never melt,
Or so it seems; nor yet will you.

Minamoto no Yoritsuna (d. 1097)
