KKS IX: 419

The prince recited the above poem many times, but was unable to think of a reply so, being one of the party, Aritsune composed this:


Fito tose ni
Fito tabi kimasu
kimi mateba
yado kasu Fito mo
arazi to zo omoFu
In a single year
But once comes
The Lord she awaits, so
One who provides lodging
She is not, I’d say!

Ki no Aritsune
