 Ne rare tamaha nu mama ni ha, "Ware ha, kaku hito ni nikuma re te mo naraha nu wo, koyohi nam, hazime te usi to yo wo omohi siri nure ba, hadukasiku te, nagarahu maziu koso, omohi nari nure." nado notamahe ba, namida wo sahe kobosi te husi tari.

Sarinubeki wori mi te, taimen su beku tabakare" to notamahi watare ba, wadurahasikere do, kakaru kata nite mo, notamahi matuhasu ha, uresiu oboye keri.

 [1-2 Genji goes to Ki-no-Kami's villa again]

 Wosanaki kokoti ni, ika nara m wori to mati wataru ni, Kinokami kuni ni kudari nado si te, womnadoti nodoyaka naru yuhuyami no miti tadotadosige naru magire ni, waga kuruma nite wi te tatematuru.

 Kono ko mo wosanaki wo, ika nara m to obose do, sa nomi mo e obosi nodomu mazikere ba, sarigenaki sugata nite, kado nado sasa nu saki ni to, isogi ohasu.

 [1-3 Utsusemi and Ki-no-kami's sister play Igo]

 Hi tikau tomosi tari. Moya no nakabasira ni sobame ru hito ya waga kokoro kakuru to, madu me todome tamahe ba, koki aya no hitohegasane na' meri. Nani ni ka ara m uhe ni ki te, kasiratuki hosoyaka ni tihisaki hito no, monogenaki sugata zo si taru. Kaho nado ha, sasimukahi tara m hito nado ni mo, wazato miyu maziu motenasi tari.

Kami ha ito husayaka ni te, nagaku ha ara ne do, sagariba, kata no hodo kiyoge ni, subete ito nedike taru tokoro naku, wokasige naru hito to miye tari.

 Mube koso oya no yo ni naku ha omohu rame to, wokasiku mi tamahu. Kokoti zo, naho siduka naru ke wo sohe baya to, huto miyuru. Kado naki ni ha aru mazi. Go uti hate te, keti sasu watari, kokorotoge ni miye te, kihagiha to saudoke ba, oku no hito ha ito siduka ni nodome te,

 Go uti hate turu ni ya ara m, uti-soyomeku kokoti si te, hitobito akaruru kehahi nado su nari.

 "Wakagimi ha iduku ni ohasimasu nara m? Kono mikausi ha sasi te m." tote, nara su nari.

 Kono ko mo, imouto no mikokoro ha tawamu tokoro naku mamedati tare ba, ihi ahase m kata naku te, hitozukuna nara m wori ni ire tatematura m to omohu nari keri.

 Womna ha, sa koso wasure tamahu wo uresiki ni omohi nase do, ayasiku yume no yau naru koto wo, kokoro ni hanaruru wori naki koro nite, kokoro toke taru i dani ne rare zu nam, hiru ha nagame, yoru ha nezame-gati nare ba, haru nara nu konome mo, itonaku nagekasiki ni, go uti turu Kimi, "Koyohi ha, konata ni." to, imamekasiku uti-katarahi te, ne ni keri.

 Wakaki hito ha, nanigokoronaku ito you madoromi taru besi.

 Kimi ha iri tamahi te, tada hitori husi taru wo kokoroyasuku obosu. Yuka no simo ni, hutari bakari zo husi taru. Kinu wo osiyari te yori tamahe ru ni, arisi kehahi yori ha, monomonosiku oboyure do, omohosiu mo yora zu kasi. Igitanaki sama nado zo, ayasiku kahari te, yauyau mi arahasi tamahi te, asamasiku kokoroyamasikere do, "Hitotagahe to tadori te miye m mo, wokogamasiku, ayasi to omohu besi, ho'i no hito wo tadune yora m mo, kabakari nogaruru kokoro a' mere ba, kahinau, woko ni koso omoha me." to obosu. Kano wokasikari turu hokage nara ba, ikaga ha se m ni obosi naru mo, waroki mikokoro asasa na' meri kasi.

 Yauyau me same te, ito oboye zu asamasiki ni, akire taru kesiki nite, nani no kokorohukaku itohosiki youi mo nasi.

Kono hito no, nama-kokoro naku, wakayaka naru kehahi mo ahare nare ba, sasuga ni nasakenasakesiku tigiri oka se tamahu.
