KKS XVII: 917

Composed and sent to someone he knew who had gone to Sumiyoshi.

住吉とあまはつぐともながゐすな人忘草おふといふなり

sumiyosi to
ama Fa tugu tomo
nagawi su na
Fito wasuregusa
oFu to iFu nari
Sumiyoshi is a pleasant place to stay,
So say the fisher-folk, yet
Do not stay there long, in Nagai;
The flower for forgetting folk
Blooms there, or so they say.

Mibu no Tadamine
