mountain temple--from the gables rising mist
61 years old. Kiku has got sick on Feudally and died on May, and third son died on December.
山寺や 切妻よりも 昇る霧
yamadera ya kiri zuma yori mo noboru kiri
yamadera ya hafu kuchi kara mo kiri no tatsu
It is silent Autumn. It is deep in the mountain. When he saw the mist rising from the gables, Did Issa feel such silence at his final age ?
