Best Poem of Yamabe no Akahito

The Mists Rise Over
The mists rise over
The waters at Asuka;
Memory does not
Pass away so easily.

~~
Asuka gawa
Kawa yodo sarazu
Tatsu kiri no
Omoi sugu beki
Koi ni aranuku ni . . .

On Misago
Beach there grows
Sargasso weed-
I'll hold fast to your name
Though your parents know! . . .
