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.

住吉の松にたちよる白波のかへる折にや音は泣かるらん

sumiyosi no
matu ni tatiyoru
siranami no
kaFeru wori ni ya
ne Fa nakaruran
At Sumiyoshi, a pleasant place,
The pines are washed over
By the whitecaps;
With their retreat
Are they left rootless, weeping wails?

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.
