the titmice split to the left and right...Yashima Island
-Issa year unknown
左 右 がらの 飛び立つ 屋島かな
hidari migi gara no tobi tatu yasima kana
yamagara mo sau e wakaruru yashima kana
Issa stand on a boart, looking many little islands.
Small birds suddenly fly up to the air.
I think it is a farwell poem, Issa would like to say
good by to the scene.
