was a famous Japanese waka poet.
She was noted as a rare beauty; Komachi is a symbol of a beautiful woman in Japan.
花の色は 移りにけりな いたづらに
My figure has declined in grace
while I was lost in thought of love and variety of things in the world,
as well as the color of flowers has faded
while I was lost in thought to no purpose with this long rain.私の容色も衰えてしまったわ、生きていることのもの思いをしていた間に。
There is no reason to be sad.
Because, you know what true love is.
