Ono no Komachi's Poetry

On such a night as this
 When no moon lights your way to me, I wake, my passion blazing, My breast a fire raging, exploding flame While within me my heart chars. (Tr. Earl Miner)


The flowers withered 
             Their color faded away
 While meaninglessly I spent my days in the world
 And the long rains were falling. (Tr. Donald Keene)
