Unbroken Gloom. - Poem by Saigyo

times when unbroken
gloom is over all our world
over which still
sits the ever brilliant moon
sight of it casts me down more

    another beautiful waka by Saigyo:

    '' The loneliness
    of my ramshackle
    grass hut,
    where no one but the wind
    comes to call ''
