A Twist Of Folded Grass - Poem by Kakinomoto no Asomi Hitomaro

A twist of folded grass, your pillow,
The only lodging on your journey;
Whose husband, I wonder?
Though in your land, forgotten
Home, they await you.

    kuni wasuretaru
    ie matamaku ni

    Ti attenderanno a casa
    nel paese che più non ricordi
