Matsuo Basho's Frog Haiku (30 translations) - commentary by Robert Aitken

Commentary by Robert Aitken


The old pond;
a frog jumps in —
the sound of the water.

Furu ike ya                Old pond!
kawazu tobikomu      frog jumps in
mizu no oto                water’s sound

This commentary is on the 30 translations of Basho's poem
