GSIS XX: 1177

When he had gone to Kibune, he wrote this on the fence surrounding the shrine.

思ふ事なる河上に跡垂れて貴船は人を渡す也けり

omoFu koto
naru kaFa kami ni
atotarete
kibune Fa Fito wo
watasu narikeri
The focus of my thoughts
Are the river’s upper flows,
Where incarnated
The deity at Kibune, folk
Transports.
