the floating bridge of dreams (2)

The poem alludes to the last chapter of Genji Monogatari, entitled The Floating Bridge of Dreams (Yume no Ukihashi). Ukifune (Floating Boat) tries to break loose from Kaoru's pursuite and throws herself into the Uji River. She however survives and finally decides to become a nun. But the tale is left unfinished.
