One hundred Poems


浅茅生の小野の篠原 しのぶれど

Asajiu no ono no
shinohara shinoburedo
amarite nado ka
hito no koishiki

Though I scarcely show my secret feelings
like those few reeds sprouting unnoticed in low bamboo, they are too much for me to hide.
Why do I love you so?

Minamoto no Hitoshi (源等, 880-951) was a Japanese waka poet of the mid-Heian period.

One of his poems was included in the Ogura Hyakunin Isshu.
