Someone whom he had known for a long time came to call; after he had departed, he composed this, attached it to a branch of cherry blossom, and sent it to him.
kimi mo ya kuru to
keFu Fa mati mite
|But briefly did you glimpse them, so|
They wonder if you will return,
These cherry blossoms;
Today, I watch them and wait for you, so
If they are to scatter, then let them!
