GSIS XI: 607

Sent to the residence of her wet nurse, to say that he wished to converse to a lady.

かくなむと蜑の漁火ほのめかせ磯べの波の折もよからば

kaku namu to
ama no isaribi
Fonomekase
isobe no nami no
wori mo yokaraba
Say “It is here,”
As the fisher folk’s fires
Faintly
With the waves toward the rocky shore
Draw near, in time…
