Baby's voice


David’s English
growing old--
these eyes no good
for flea chasing

一茶
としよりも蚤を追ふ目はかすまぬか
toshiyori mo nomi wo ou me wa kasumanu ka

by Issa, 1822
Age 60, on third month his third son is born. He has lost three children already.
Next year his wife will die.

sakuo renku
耳に赤子の声の浸みけり

Baby’s voice penetrating
to my ears
