Kobayashi Issa Quotes

Kobayashi Issa Quotes

What a strange thing!
to be alive
beneath cherry blossoms.

Never forget:
we walk on hell,
gazing at flowers.

In the cherry blossom's shade
there's no such thing
as a stranger.

On the Death of his Child

Dew Evaporates
And all our world is dew...so dear,
So fresh, so fleeting

Summer night-
even the stars
are whispering to each other.

I'm here-
the snow falling.

before the gate -
my walking stick's made a river
of melting snow

Hi! My little hut
Is newly-thatched I see...
Blue morning-glories
