MYS IX: 1765



ama nö kapa
kïri tati wataru
kepu kepu tö
wa ga matu kimi si
puna desurasi mo
On heaven’s river
The mists rise and drift across
“It’s today! Today!”
My awaited lord
Has set off in his boat, I think.

The above poems are said to have been composed by the Major Captain of the Central Palace Guards Headquarters, from the house of the Northern Lord Fujiwara [Fujiwara no Fusasaki (681 – 737)].
