Best Poem of Ono no Komachi

When My Desire

When my desire
grows too fierce
I wear my bedclothes
inside out,
dark as the night's rough husk.

Read the full of When My Desire

Atop This Crag

Atop this crag
I am to spend a traveller's night;
So cold!
Your robes of moss,
Won't you lend me?

[Hata Bildir]
