Ise Shū 32

When she was asked to compose a poem by Her Majesty, she wrote this inside a scroll and sent it to her.

山河のおとにのみきくももしきを身をはやながら見るよしもがな

yamagaFa no
oto ni nomi kiku
momosiki wo
mi wo Faya nagara
miru yosi mo gana
A mountain brook
Babbling is all I hear
Over the many-stoned palace
Swift as the current would I return to the days
I saw it-how I wish it could be so!
