Love on Meeting

Left (Win)

人ごころいまはかぎりになりぬればみるこそみぬにおとらざりけれ

hitogokoro
ima wa kagiri ni
narinureba
miru koso minu ni
otorazarikere
My human heart
Now has its bound
Reached, so
Seeing you compared to not
Is no worse!

Right

わかれてはのちぞかなしきにごりえのそこともしらぬありかとおもへは

wakarete wa
nochi zo kanashiki
nigorie no
soko to mo shiranu
arika to omoeba
Parting does
Later bring such sadness:
A muddy inlet’s
Depths leave me unknowing
Of where she is, so…

Mitsune
