  1. As best I can tell based on WWWJDIC and Weblio, it seems like おふる is the rentaikei (attributive) form of 生う (to grow, to spring up), modifying the (?) kakekotoba まつ.

    Here’s my attempt, trying to preserve the pun on “pines” as best I can:

    Though we are parted, / If I hear you pine for me / strong as those that grow / atop Mount Inaba’s peak, / then I will return to you.
