Sumida crain

Issa 一茶 1810 Age 48


柴の戸やかすむたそくの隅田鶴
shiba no to ya kasumu tasoku no sumida-zuru

David’s English

at my humble hut so many in the mist! Sumida River cranes

Shinji Ogawa explains that shiba no to (brushwood door) is an idiom for a "hut" or "my humble house." It does not mean that Issa's door is literally made of brushwood.
