HAIKU





行く秋のところどころや下り梁
yuku aki no tokorodokoro ya kudariyana

while autumn is passing
here and there -
downstream fish weirs


The cut marker YA is at the end of line 2.

Written in 1768.

悲しさや 釣の糸ふく 秋の風
kanashisa ya tsuri no ito fuku aki no kaze

quote
Sadness;
The fishing line trembles
In the autumn wind.


This does not mean he is sad, and then sees the line trembling in the wind; it means that seeing the line trembling in the wind of autumn is in itself sadness — the seeing is the feeling. That is because of all the layers of association it evokes — the withering of things, the ending of things, the certainty of mortality, and yet none of these things are mentioned in the verse, and mentioning them goes too far in explaining it.
That is the suggestiveness of hokku.
Tr. and comment by David Coomler


Ah, grief and sadness !
The fishing-line trembles
In the autumn breeze.

Tr. Blyth


sadness -
a fishing-line blows
in the autumn wind

Tr. Haldane


A sorrow --
Curving a fishing line
The autumn wind.

Tr. Nelson/Saito


While feeling sad --
a fishing line being blown
by the autumn wind.

Tr. Sawa/ Shiffert


Written in 1773.
. Yosa Buson 与謝蕪村 in Edo .

初猟の老いたる犬に火を熾す 
hatsuryoo no oitaru inu ni hi o okosu

first hunting -
I make a warming fire
for my old dog


Haruka 遥
