GSS X: 661

When he had not visited someone whom he had got to know for a long time, he went there, and sent this in from the gate.


sumiyosi no
matu ni tatiyoru
siranami no
kaFeru wori ni ya
ne Fa nakaruran

The pines are washed over
By the whitecaps;
With their retreat
Are they left rootless, weeping wails?

Mibu no Tadamine
