Horikawa-in Enjo Awase 10


mono’omou hito wa
ukigumo no
sora ni koisuru
na o nomi zo tatsu
I kept it secret, yet
She, who is the focus of my thoughts, is
As a drifting cloud
Within the sky, and of my love
Rumours, alone, do rise toward her.

Middle Captain Morotoki, Fourth Rank


koisu to mo
ikade ka sora ni
na wa tataji
shinoburu hodo wa
sode ni tsutsumade
You love, so
How is it that the skies
Could remain untouched by rumours?
Your secret
You’ve not kept wrapped within your sleeves…

Lady Aki, in service to the Empress Dowager
