waka by Dainagon Kinto (Fujiwara no Kinto) (966-1041)

Taki no oto wa
Taete hisashiku
Na koso nagarete
Nao kikoe kere

[approximate English translation of Japanese text:
Though the waterfall
Ceased its flowing long ago
And its sound is stilled
Yet in name it ever flows
And in fame may yet be heard]
