SKKS X: 901

On coming up from Tsukushi, after finishing his posting as Governor General.


koko ni arite
tsukushi ya izuko
shira kumo no
tanabiku yama no
nishi ni arurashi
Here I am, yet
Where might Tsukushi be?
Clouds of white
Flutter ’cross the mountains
In the west-’tis where it lies, I’d say.

Major Councillor [Ōtomo no] Tabito
