MYS XX: 4476

A poem composed at a banquet held at the residence of Ōtomo no Ikenushi, on the 23rd day [of the Eleventh Month, 758].

奧山のしきみが花の名のごとやしくしく君に戀ひわたりなむ

okuyama no
sikimi ga pana no
na no goto ya
sikusiku kimi ni
kopiwatarinamu
In Okuyama
The star anise blossoms, and
Just so
Ever will you
Be in my thoughts.

Ōhara no Mahito
大原真人
