SKS IX: 310

Composed to say they both had reason to be careful, when a man was disappointed that they could not meet easily.


wono ga mi no
ono ga kokoro ni
kanaFanu wo
omoFaba mono Fa
omoFi sirinamu
Within your breast
Lies your desire:
That it has not been met,
If you would think, the reason
You know well enough!

Izumi Shikibu
