History (Thomas W Hare):
|"Sode no tsuyu" means "dew upon the sleeve." It's an old poetic image which|
often implies a comparison between dew and tears, and envisions a subject
speaking about his or her long silk sleeves bedecked with tears. The tears are
often seen to reflect the image of the moon, which in its turn harbors a broad
range of poetic and religious associations.
