Best Poem of Saigyo

The Monk Saigyo

Should I blame the moon
For bringing forth this sadness,
As if it pictured grief?
Lifting up my troubled face,
I regard it through my tears

Having Drifted Apart

Having drifted apart,
Why should folk
Despise each other? For
Not known and unknowing
Times there were once before…
