GSS XX: 1386

When someone came from the Eastlands with a horse for him, not having heard that Atsutoshi had died.

まだ知らぬ人も有りける東路に我も行てぞ住むべかりける

mada siranu
Fito mo arikeru
adumadi ni
ware mo yukite zo
sumubekarikeru
As yet unaware
Folk there are;
On the eastland roads
I must make my way
And find a home.

The Minister of the Left, [Fujiwara no Saneyori (900-970)]
