MYS II: 146

A poem composed on the occasion of the Imperial visit to the province of Ki in the first year of Taihō [701].

後見むと君が結べる磐代の小松がうれをまたも見むかも

noti mimu to
kimi ga musuberu
ipasiro no
komatu ga ure wo
mata mo mimu kamo
Thinking to see it more
The Prince did tie
At Iwashiro
Pine saplings’ tips –
I wonder, will he see them more…

This poem appears in the Kakinonomot no Hitomaro Collection.
