This website has the romajified version of it, plus some background:

Best blond moment (said to a Japanese person):

\"Can you understand Anime without the subtitles on?\"

*sigh* I wish I could claim that one!

I've noticed a typo in the article in wikipedia.
"Izumo yagegaki" should be "Izumo yaegaki" and "Yaegaki tsukuro" should be "Yaegaki tsukuru".
Here is a same poem in Kana Kanji:
八雲立つ出雲八重垣妻籠みに八重垣作るその八重垣を
And only in Hiragana:
やくもたつ いずもやゑがき つまごみに やゑがきつくる そのやゑがきを

I tried to translate this poem into English, but I couldn't because I'm poor in my English language studies.
Sorry about that. ごめんよ。
