KYS VII: 375

Composed in the conception of Love at the poetry competition held at the house of Lord Saneyuki.


koFi wabite
osaFuru sode ya
namida no kaFa no
iseki naruramu
Grieving for love,
Are my wave-dashed sleeves
For this outflowing
River of tears
A dam, perhaps?

Fujiwara no Michitsune (1060?-?)
