Sanekata Shū 84

At around the same time the Lady Shōjō performed as one of the Gosechi dancers and I sent this to her on her return:


wotome ni ikade
sakakiba no
kaFaranu iro to
sirasetesi kana
As a goddess did you dance,
O, maiden; somehow, that
As the sacred evergreens’
Unchanging hues is my passion,
I would have you know.
