SKKS VI: 672

When the Regent and Grand Minister was a Major Councillor, he had this composed on snow upon a mountain hut.

まつ人のふもとのみちはたえぬらんのきばのすぎに雪をもるなり

matsu hito no
fumoto no michi wa
taenuran
nokiba no sugi ni
yuki o moru nari
Awaiting one whose
Path among the foothills
Has vanished, I think;
The cedar by my eaves
Is buried deep in snow.

Composed on mamaki no yatate (a wood and bamboo arrow stand).

三倉山真木の屋立ててすむたみ年をつむともくちじとぞ思ふ

On Mount Mikura
A house of cedar wood stands;
The folk living there,
Will pass through an mound of years, yet
Not die, I feel.
