SKKS VII: 744

Sent to Hiyoshi Junior Priest [Haburibe no] Narinaka for his seventieth birthday celebrations.

なゝそぢにみつのはまゝつおいぬれどちよのゝこりは猶ぞはるけき

nanaso ji ni
mitsu no hama matsu
oinuredo
chi yo no nokori wa
nao zo harukeki
In their seventieth year
The pines upon the beach at Mitsu
Are aged, yet
The remainder of their thousand years
Stretches to yet greater distance.

[Fujiwara no] Kiyosuke
藤原清輔
