Treasure Island

ion untaru

(3 december 1939 / Village Finta, Dambovitza)

the japanese classic of haiku


Basho
---
spring rain
the river willow blow back
the straw coat

a cloud oh cherry blossoms
the temple bell
is it Ueno, is it Asakusa?


Shiki
--
wake up, wake up
sleeping buttrefly and
let us be companions

carrying a girl
across the river
the hazy moon

a willow and
two or three cows
waiting for the boat


Rotsu
--
a hill of cherry blossom
I will slumber on
a smoothe stone


Kito
--
the paper weights on
the picture-book in the shop
the spring wind!


Buson
---
lighting one candle
with another candle
an evening of spring

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
