GSIS XI: 661

Composed on the conception of love as a year passes when people were at the residence of the Regent and former Minister of the Left.

われがみはとがへるたかとなりにけりとしはふれどもこゐはわすれず

ware ga mi Fa
togaFeru taka to
narinikeri
tosi Fa Furedomo
kowi Fa wasurezu
My flesh as
A hawk returning to its mews
Has become;
A year has passed, yet
This love I will not forget.

The Minister of the Left [Minamoto no Toshifusa]
