Sanekata Shū 227

After speaking with a women, the following day I sent this attached to a pink, and what do you think happened?

とこなつの花の露にはむつれねどぬるともなくて濡れし袖かな

tokonatu no
Fana no tuyu ni Fa
muturenedo
nurutomonakute
nuresi sode kana
Well-bedded, the pink
Flower’s dewfall:
Intimate with it I’m not, yet
Unsuspecting,
How drenched have my sleeves become!
