MYS II: 114

A poem composed by Princess Tajima, when she was staying at the palace of Prince Takechi, and thinking fondly of Prince Hozumi.


aki no ta no
po mukiyoreru
katayori ni
kimi ni yori na na
kotitaku ari to mo
In the autumn fields
The ripened ears incline
Toward me all together;
Just as I would beckon you, my love,
Heedless of stinging rumours…

Princess Tajima ( -708)
