Sanekata Shū 192

When I was leaving for Michinoku, Lord Yorimitsu came to visit; he dropped his fan and I returned it with this.

目のまへにまづも忘るゝ扇かなわかれはこゝろうしろめたけれ

me no maFe ni
madu mo wasururu
aFugi kana
wakare Fa kokoro
usirometakere
Right before my eyes
First forgotten is
This fan;
Parting is, indeed, a heart’s
Grief.
