SKKS VIII: 780

Sent to someone who had lost a little child.

わかれけんなごりの袖もかはかぬにをきやそふらん秋のゆふつゆ

wakareken
nagori no sode mo
kawakanu ni
oki ya souran
aki no yû tsuyu
Did I hear that you were parted?
Tracks upon your sleeves
Undrying, yet
Will they fall still harder, I wonder,
These dewdrops of an autumn evening…

Daini no Sanmi
大弐三位
