Mr. Toad--the fifth month rainshave begun!
50 years old, lived in Edo, leaving out on November tohis home village for dwelling eternally there.
がま殿や 五月雨すでに 降り始め
gama dono ya samidare sudeni furi hajime
hiki dono no hatsu samidare yo samidare yo
Toad likes the humid corner where mold grows. He likes the season of rain that is May rain in old lunar calendar. Issa called a toad with Mr that is respectable saying but he would josh the toad with some affection.
