GSIS XIII: 751

Composed and sent to the same place.

陸奥の緒絶えの橋やこれならむふみゝふまずみ心まどはす

mitinoku no
wodae no Fasi ya
kore naramu
Fumi mi Fumazu
mikokoro madoFasu
In Michinoku
Is the bridge of Odae
Such as this?
Trodden then untrodden, letters and then non
It does twist my heart.

Master of the Left Capital Office, Michimasa
左京大夫通雅

Sanekata Shū 279

At about the time I was made Governor of Michinoku, and was about to withdraw from court, as the pine torches were late in being lit, Middle Captain Michinobu (with Sanekata) said:

松まつほどぞ久しかりける

matu matu Fodo zo
Fisasikarikeru
Awaiting, our pining time
Has been long, indeed…

And Kodaigimi:

みちのくにほど遠ければ武隈の

mitinoku ni
Fodo towokereba
takekuma no
For Michinoku
Is faraway as
The pine of Takekuma!

Sanekata Shū 219

Masahira, Senior Assistant Minister of Ceremonial, sent this to me in Michinoku.

都にはたれをか君は思ふらん都にはみな君を戀ふめり

miyako ni Fa
tare wo ka kimi Fa
omoFuran
miyako ni Fa mina
kimi wo koFumeri
Within the Capital
Who is it you
Hold dear?
Within the Capital everyone
For you is longing, it seems.
