17. From my Critique of the Seven Herbs Collection – No. 9


『七草集』評より

其九

長命寺中鬻餅家
當壚少女美如花
芳姿一段可憐處
別後思君紅淚加

From my Critique of the Seven Herbs Collection – No. 9

In the Temple of Longevity, a family sells rice cakes,

A young girl working at sake shop, beauty like a blossom.

When her sweet figure appeals to me even more;

Then after parting, I think of you, and red tears fall.
