a quick song katydid

by Issa in 1818,his age of 56.
Fifty month, a daughter was born.

It is Autumn,because katydid is Kigo of September.

It is in bed room, because lantern is set in dark room.

Key phrase is [tyoi to nakeri]=[a quick song]

Katydid is wild insect,so when some one enter into room,
the insect didn't sing.

Katydid is a young lady, because the Key phrase is told by Edo local speech just like the Cockney of Londoner.
It was smart and sharp.
