Love 80

Left (Tie).


suma no ama no
sode ni fukikosu
shio kaze no
naru to wa suredo
te ni mo tamarazu
Among the Suma fisher-folks’
Sleeves blows
The brine-filled tidewind:
Well-used to it, yet
My hand can hold it not.


Right (Tie).


yasurai ni
idekeru kata mo
shiratori no
tobayama matsu no

ne ni nomi zo naku
Pained with parting and
Whence you went unknowing,
As a white dove on
Toba Mountains’ pine tree
Roots am I, constantly crying.
