Uta Koi: Episode 11 Poetry


The only poem featured in this episode is #57 from the Hyakunin Isshu, penned by Lady Murasaki Shikibu (known mostly for the Tale of Genji, which is considered one of the earliest forms of the modern novel).

Meguri aite

Mishiya sore to mo

Wakaru ma ni

Kumo gakure ni shi

Yowa no tsuki kage.

"Long last we meet, only for me to leave hurriedly, for I could not recognize you like the moon hides behind the clouds."

Also +1000 points for this episode being a serious feminist critique. Inner Feminist and I are just loving all these strong lady characters!!
