KKS XVII: 914

When Tsurayuki was in the province of Izumi, Tadafusa came over from Yamato and composed and sent this poem.

君を思ひおきつのはまになくたづの尋ねくればぞありとだにきく

kimi wo omoFi
okitu no Fama ni
naku tadu no
tadune kureba zo
ari to dani kiku
Concerned for you
By Okitsu beach
The calling cranes
Come and enquire
Finding you in good health, at least.

Fujiwara no Tadafusa
