Fisher Folk Poem by Ono no Komachi

Fisher Folk

Rating: 5.0


Fisher folk live
In villages; where
I know not, yet
Constant complaints to see the shore
Are all he seems to say.

this is another translation: I know nothing About villages Where fisherfolk dwell; Why must you keep demanding To be shown the seashore? (Tr. Helen Craig McCullough)

- the last two lines also mean: '' Why do you persist in saying that you are angry with me? ''
