“How reproachful, so reproachful
No matter how deep my grudge against you is,
and no matter how much you cry and scream, You can be with Prince Genji,
more beautiful and shining than glowing fireflies near the water,
and make love with him as long as you live” *

* Quoted from Yokyoku Aoi no Ue (Lady Aoi).
