great Edo


David’s English
great Edo
from nook to nook
"Cuckoo!"

o^edo no sumi kara sumi made hototogisu
一茶
大江戸の隅からすみ迄時鳥

by Issa, 1825
Age 63 divorced with second wife. all his family died.
lonely old daddy wasn’t he?
But he said I still have Haiku.
He wish to state that to all men I am here,
keeping to sing haiku song.
