only my trouble

David’s English
the sky colors
of dawn have changed
to summer clothes

曙の空色衣かへにけり    一茶
akebono no sora iro koromo kae ni keri
by Issa, 1807

sakuo Comment
1807 7th month Issa returned to home village for attending to father’s funnel patry held at 7 years later from father’s death.
The father said his assets should be divided even between Issa and brother.
But it has been not executed till now. How long has suffered Issa?

かわらぬものは我が難儀のみ
kawaranu mono ha waga nangi nomi

the unchangeable is
only my trouble
