Sanekata Shū 185

When I had gone to the palace of the Former Empress to report that I was to leave for the provinces, Jijū the Handmaid said, while providing me with supplies for the journey:


michinoku ni
koromo no seki Fa
In Michinoku
The barrier of garments
Will you thread, yet

And I nimbly concluded:


mata aFusaka Fa
tanomosiki kana
Still, on Meeting Hill is
Where I would be.
