SKKS XI: 1081

On ‘love among the clouds’, when she presented a fifty-poem sequence.


shitamoe ni
omoi kienan
keburi dani
ato naki kumo no
hate zo kanashiki
Burning beneath,
I shall die of love;
Even my smoke
Leaving no mark among the clouds:
A sad ending, indeed.

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