difficult to be right

Issa Original
人はいさ直な案山子もなかりけり
hitoha isa suguna kakasi mo nakari keri

David’s English
like people
an upright scarecrow
can’t be found

Sakuo Renku
我も正しく非ずなり
Me too
can not be right

This is one of my favorite Issa poems and now, thanks to your painting, I have a great image to go with it.
