And if you read her poem, you'll notice it's not the one from the episode. Ko no Naishi's poem is #54 under the name Gido Sanshi no Haha.

Edit: found her on that site under yet another name lol:
Eep. I feel sorry for all the students of classical Japanese literature trying to keep straight the various names for the same poets. Must be a memorization nightmare. Something on the order of keeping all the character names straight in Shakespeare's history plays is for classical English lit students.
