SZS VII: 477

When [Fujiwara no] Arikuni became Senior Assistant Governor General [of Dazaifu] and went down, Kintō composed:


wakare yori
masarite wosiki
inoti kana
kimi ni Futa tabi
aFamu to omoFeba
More than parting-
Far more do I regret
My life;
Once more with you
Might I meet, I wonder.

Former Major Councillor [Fujiwara no] Kintō
