Composed in the Second year of Jōryaku (1079) at the Palace poetry competition, on the spirit of Felicitation.

君がよはひさしかるべしわたらひやいすゞのかはのながれたえせで

kimi ga yo wa
hisashikarubeshi
watarai ya
isuzu no kawa no
nagare taesede
My Lord’s reign
Will last eternally, I’m sure; as
At Watarai
The Isuzu River
Flows on, unceasing.

Former Middle Councillor [Ōe no] Masafusa
