Lady Ukon (右近) was the daughter or younger sister of Fujiwara no Suenawa who flourished during the 10th century.
One of her poems (No.38) can be found in the Ogura Hyakunin Isshu and goes as follows:
|Japanese text2||Romanized Japanese1||English translation1|
mi o ba omowazu
hito no inochi no
oshiku mo aru kana
|Though you have forgotten me,|
I do not worry about myself,
but how I fear for you,
as you swore before the gods
of your undying love.
