After her mother’s death, composed on the evening of the funeral at Saga.


ima wa sa wa
uki yo no saga no
nobe o koso
tsuyu kiehateshi
ato to shinobame
Now it is just so:
In this fleeting world at Saga
Field, indeed, has
The dew vanished completely, and
All I can do is recall the traces left behind.

The Daughter of Master of the Dowager Empress’ Household Office Toshinari
