KKS I: 30

Composed when hearing the geese calling and thinking of someone who had gone to Koshi.


Faru kureba
kari kaFerunari
shirakumo no
mitiyukiburi ni
koto ya tutemasi
When spring does come,
The geese head home;
Among clouds of white
Upon their way, O,
I would they’d take a message with them!

Ōshikōchi no Mitsune
