Year's end, all
corners of this
floating world, swept.
For a lovely bowl Let us arrange these flowers... For there is no rice
I am one who eats breakfast gazing at morning glories.
Year's end still in straw hat and sandals
The fact that Saigyo composed a poem that begins, "I shall be unhappy without loneliness," shows that he made loneliness his master.
Between our two lives there is also the life of the cherry blossom.
Sadly, I part from you; Like a clam torn from its shell, I go, and autumn too.
Poverty's child - he starts to grind the rice, and gazes at the moon.
Old pond, leap-splash - a frog.
At the ancient pond the frog plunges into the sound of water
Felling a tree and gazing at the cut end - tonight's moon
Don't imitate me / we are not two halves / of a muskmelon.
Twilight whippoorwill... Whistle on, sweet deepener Of dark loneliness
Old dark sleepy pool... Quick unexpected frog Goes plop! Watersplash!
I felt quite at home, / As if it were mine sleeping lazily / In this house of fresh air.
Fresh spring! / The world is only Nine days old - / These fields and mountains!
The sea darkens And a wild duck s call Is faintly white.
Friends part foreverwild geese lost in cloud
Not to think of yourself / as someone who did not count -- / Festival of the Souls.
Do not resemble me-Never be like a musk melon Cut in two identical halves.
Collecting all The rains of May The swift Mogami River.
This autumn- why am I growing old? bird disappearing among clouds.
A thicket of summer grass / Is all that remains / Of the dreams of ancient warriors.
If I had the knack I'd sing like Cherry flakes falling
Winter garden, the moon thinned to a thread, insects singing.
