Uta Koi: Episode 12 Poetry

9 OCT
2012

The first poem by Fujiwara no Michimasa is #63 in the Hyakunin Isshu:

Ima wa tada

Omoi taenamu

To bakari wo

Hitozute nara de

Iu yoshi mo ga na.

"After I determined to abandon my love, my only regret is that I have no way to tell you in person."

The next one is by former Emperor Sanjo as he is retiring to be a monk, #68 in the Hyakunin Isshu:

Kokoro ni mo

Arade yuki yo ni

Nagaraeba

Koishikarubeki

Yowa no tsuki kana.

"As the years pass, I find myself longing for the sight of a midnight moon."

Would like to express some annoyance that this episode was half a story and half a person's flashbacks of the same story.
