amazing-- in the house I was born
spring begins today years unknown
fushigi nari umareta ie de kyô no haru
The haiku has the prescript, "After fifty years' absence, returning to my native village."
Issa has leaved home at his 14 years old, so plus 50 years, it become
at 64 years old of Issa'age.
He has died at 65, so this haiku was made at one year before his death.
At this year August he will marry with third wife Yao.
"How long I have been alive”
