Fawn




hagi no ha ni kakure kurasuru kanoko kana
in bush clover
staying well hidden...
a fawn

karakasa no shita ni shibaraku kanoko kana
lingering
under the paper umbrella...
a fawn

yĆ» yami ya kanoko madara no yuri no hana
evening gloom--
a fawn's spots
in the lilies

© Kobayashi Issa (Tr. David G. Lanoue)



evening twilight
under the birdfeeder
spotted fawn picnics
