SKKS IX: 874

When Sanekata was going down to Michinoku, he composed this as a parting gift.

わかれぢはいつもなげきのたえせぬにいとゞかなしき秋のゆふぐれ

wakareji wa
itsumo nageki no
taesenu ni
itodo kanashiki
aki no yugure
The path of parting
Is ever one of grief
Unending, though
How much more sad
On this Autumn evening.

Middle Councillor Taka’ie
