A poem from One Hundred Poets, One Poem Each (Hyakunin isshu

, 百人一首) by Fujiwara no Teika.

Translated by Peter MacMillan.

99. Retired Emperor Gotoba

Though it is futile to ponder
the ways of the world,
I am lost in desolate musing –
I have loved some and hated others,
even hated the ones I love.

    @Lulu @Lulu . Desolate means empty, no people, lonely or uncomfortable feeling, musing means deep thought, so put them together I think it means “ Lost in deep thought of which is not flourishing, not happy, sad, empty ” , well it’s my personal understanding:)
