Collection Of Six Haiku Poem by Matsuo Basho

Collection Of Six Haiku

Rating: 3.9


Waking in the night;
the lamp is low,
the oil freezing.



It has rained enough
to turn the stubble on the field
black.




Winter rain
falls on the cow-shed;
a cock crows.




The leeks
newly washed white,-
how cold it is!




The sea darkens;
the voices of the wild ducks
are faintly white.





Ill on a journey;
my dreams wander
over a withered moor.

Perhaps because these Haiku are trnslated from the Japanese language, that's why the syllables have become different numbers.SURE, this must be the reason!
