regret still remains

Issa Original year unknown
行たいか雁伸上り伸上り
yukitai ka kari nobi-agari nobi-agari

David’s English
thinking of taking off
goose on tiptoe
on tiptoe

sakuo comment
The goose was Issa who was hesitating to retire the traditional sect that
had come from Bashou , the originator of haiku.
And Issa was thinking to participate to newly-risen sect that was sponsored by Mr. Natume who was a great moneylender as well as a great art sponsor.

未練は残る俳句本流

reaching for the stars
