☆Kasa-no Iratsume’s poem:
Of all the loves ‘round,
Mine’s an unrequited one,
That you always shun.
It’s like kneeling to the ground
For Preta’s back in a temple...
Another piece by Lady Kasa –
Kasa-no Iratsume sings her emotions of solitude and lingering affection in a strong and passionate phrase, and even degrades herself to a position where she feels as if she was begging and praying to the rear of Preta – a hungry and lowly spirit in Buddhism/ Hinduism world. (per Mr. Ogawa in his book)
