only Grieving

Issa Original
tuyu no yo ha tuyu no nagara sari nagara

David’s English
this world
is dewdrop world

Sakuo Comment
At this time, Issa has lost two his children.
The first son died after 27 days of his birth. The first daughter, Sato,
died after a year and a month of her birth.
Issa prefaced  only “Grieving “ at his haiku.
