SKKS XIV: 1335

From the Minase 15 Love Poem Poetry Contest.


yado no michi shiba
karegare ni
atonaki shimo no
He came and went
Along my dwelling’s paths-the greenery
Now withered-long since he was here;
Undinted, the frostfall
Covers all, while I go on loving him.

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