How about town moon ?

harvest moon

David English
harvest moon--deep in the mountain a mountain moon

sakuo Japanese
meigetu ya yamaoku fukaku yama no tuki

Issa Original
meigetsu ya yama no oku ni wa yama no tsuki

sakuo impression
At a glance ,sakuo and Issa seem to be same, but they are quite difference. Issa's is much stronger than sakuo.The difference comes from [okufukaku]=deep and [niha]=nothing but.
