Sahyōe no suke sadafumi uta’awase 17

Left (Tie)

あふことのいまはかたほになるふねのかざままつ身はよるかたもなし

au koto no
ima wa katao ni
naru fune no
kazama matsu mi wa
yoru kata mo nashi
Meeting you has made me
Now a reef-sailed
Boat
Awaiting the wind, with
No course to set.

ねでまちしはつかのつきのはつかにもあひみしことをいつかわすれむ

nede machishi
hatsuka no tsuki no
hatsuka ni mo
aimishi koto o
itsuka wasuremu
Sleepless I awaited
The twentieth night’s moon, when
In the dimness
We did meet—
When might I forget it?
