play for a while

David’s English
is the night this nice
in China?

konna yo wa kara ni mo aro ka hototogisu

by Issa, 1811.
Age 49 staying in Edo. He has been getting position as poet.
The last year was bad year for him.
On January he lost his beloved Mrs. Kakyo. On November he was suspected as a robber by Mr. Natume, big sponsor.
He has been still in the chaos of long struggle on inheritance.

sakuo renku
ukiyo hanarete sibashi aso ban

free from the world
playing for a while
