The Japanese Classic Of Haiku - Poem by ion untaru

spring rain
the river willow blow back
the straw coat

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

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

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

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

lighting one candle
with another candle
an evening of spring
