Without end
Do I think of you and so
Come to me at night.
For on the path of dreams at least,
There's no one to disapprove!

Another of her waka - and one of her more passionate poems.. ??????????????????????????? I’d meet him tonight But there’s no moon, no path. My yearning for him, Smoldering ember in my breast, Burns my heart to ash! [ ???? - Ono no Komachi ]
