A brilliant female poet whose poems are considered great poetry.

kuraki yori
kuraki michi ni zo
haruka ni terase
yama no ha no tsuki

From utter darkness,
I must embark upon an
even darker road---
o distant moon cast your light
from the rim of the mountains.


Out of the dark,
Into a dark path
I now must enter:
Shine on me from afar,
Moon of the mountain fringe!


Coming from darkness
I shall enter on a path
Of greater darkness
Shine on me from the distance,
Moon at the edge of the mount.

vaellan pimeyteen
eikä tietäni
valaise kuin kaukainen
kuu vuoriston harjalla.
