The Five Kasen's Splendor: Aoi no Okina

Glorious court life was my youth, and my old age a moonlit haze.
I had not wished to behave so treacherously, but my very life was threatened.
So I sought out my old work, and hid them in my clothes.
I do not understand the reason behind all that has happened, only that the mysterious person's motives must be perverse.
This poem was dedicated to Akihito [sic], who to my great sorrow was banished.
