MYS XX: 4425

On the 20th day, Second Month, twenty poems about sakimori were presented by the Superintendent of Sakimori, Musashi Province: Mikuni, Lord Azumi, of the Senior Sixth Rank. However, unskilful efforts were not recorded.


sakimori ni
yuku pa ta ga se tö
topu pitö wo
miru ga tömosisa
monö omopi mo sezu
“For a border-guard
Whose man is to go?”
The people ask;
Seeing them I envy,
Feeling nothing else.
