すりつぶす 蟋蟀の足 軒端かな
suri tubu su kourogi no asi noki kana
kôrogi ni fumi-tsubusareshi hisashi kana
The eaves are little insect so that they can not stepped dowm the eaves.I think the eaves is the symbol of the house ,that must be respected.
To damage one's eaves means to damage personal dignity .Issa would be deeply shamed by some one who is stupid.
