[One of] two poems composed when they assembled at the residence of Junior Secretary of Ceremonial Otomo sukune Ikenushi for a banquet on the 23rd day.

初雪は千重に降りしけ恋ひしくの多かる我れは見つつ偲はむ

tipe ni purisiki
kopisiku no
opokaru ware pa
mitutu sinopamu

For love
Lies heavy on me, and
Gazing on you, I will remember her…
