KYS VIII: 473

On a morning when the snow was falling, when he returned home from the house of Idewa no Ben, she sent this after him.

送りては歸れと思ひし魂の行きさすらひてけさはなき哉

wokurite Fa
kaFere to omoFisi
tamasiwi no
yuki sasuraFite
kesa Fa naki kana
To see you off and
Home did think
My soul-
It wanders lost in misery-
This morning I am quite forlorn.

Idewa no Ben
