KKS XV: 780

When Lord [Fujiwara no] Nakahira, whom she had known and been meeting for some time, became more distant towards her, she decided to go to her father, the Governor of Yamato, and, composing this, sent it to Nakahira:


miwa no yama
ika ni matimimu
tosi Fu tomo
tadunuru Fito mo
arazi to omoFeba
On the mount of Miwa
Why should I wait
Years may pass, yet
Would you come enquiring-
I think not!
