SZS XVI: 1030

When he went to Tennōji and, while at Nagara heard someone say that there used to be a bridge here.

行末を思へばかなし津の國のながらの橋も名が殘りけり

tu no kuni no
nagara no Fasi mo
na ga nokorikeri
What has befallen –
When I think on it, it is so sad that
In the province of Tsu
The bridge of Nagara
Has left behind its name, alone…
