KKS IV: 180

Composed on the evening of the Seventh day.

織女にかしつる絲の打ちはへて年のをながくこひやわたらむ

tanabata ni
kasituru ito no
utiFaFete
tosi no wo nagaku
koFi ya wataran
To the Weaver Maid
We offer thread
Stretched out
A year is far, indeed,
Will love span it, I wonder?

Ōshikōchi no Mitsune  (Fl. 898-922)
凡河内 躬恒
