SKKS XIV: 1285

From the Poetry Contest in 1500 Rounds.


ta ga itsuwari mo
mada shirade
matsu to seshi ma no
niwa no yomogyu
The way of the world-
Lies-no one had
Yet told me, and
While I have been waiting,
My garden’s become all overgrown.

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