When the earlier Nijō Minister [Fujiwara no Norimichi (996-1075)] recovered after having been ill for days, he said to her, ‘Why didn’t you ask after me?’ and she composed:
nageki ni koso Fa
mi ni si araneba
My worry for you
Might have brought me in my grief;
Should one ask if you’re alive-
I am not such a one.
