Ono No Komachi

Jun 2, 2009 in ,

So I found out about Ono No Komachi... she's this like legendary poet who lived in... 830 I think. So she was supposed to have unparalleled beauty, and she told this guy that liked her that if he visited her for 100 nights straight, she'd become his lover. He visited her, but in the end he couldn't go... he was so sad he died. When she found out about his death, she was very sad.


Anyways, click here to read her poems. They're beautiful... Man I need to read through 'em and find a good one for a siggy/whatever.

And she's Japanese.
