Sanekata Shū 214

From the lady in the Sen’yōden, with some traveling clothes.

見ぬほどのかたみに添ふる心あるをあくなとぞおもふ筥潟の磯

minu Fodo no
katami ni soFuru
kokoro aru wo
aku na to zo omoFu
hakokata no iso
While we cannot meet
Let these be a keepsake close
By your heart;
Open not to other thoughts of me,
Boxed by the stony shore of Hakokata.
