Love Interrupted by a Single Night 隔一夜恋

笛竹のあなわづらはし一夜をもこぬをつらさのふしになせとや

fuetake no
ana wazurawashi
hito yo o mo
konu o tsurasa no
fushi ni nase to ya
A bamboo flute –
Unplayed, does suffer so;
Even the space of a single night
He does not come, does wrench and
Knot – ‘Lie down and sleep!’ should I say that?
