love cat

Issa 一茶
恋猫の源氏めかする垣根哉
koi neko no genji mekasuru kakine kana

David’s English
the lover cat
dandied up like Genji
at the hedge

by Issa, 1809
The haiku spoofs a scene from The Tale of Genji (Chapter 5), wherein Prince Genji peers through a brushwood hedge and catches sight of ten-year old Murasaki.
