dropping willow

David’s English
drooping willow--
the gate's crookedness
not quite hidden

一茶 1816年.
tare yanagi kado no magari wa kakurenu zo

by Issa, 1816 Age 54

sakuo renku & renga
Two years before, married with 28 years bridal.
Fourth Month, a son is born, but soon dies.

若妻手を引き 背を伸ばす
waka-tuma te wo hiki se wo nobasu
young wife lead with hand
old stretch his back
