Translated by Peter Beilenson, this beautiful volume shares verses from haiku masters Basho, Buson, Issa, Shiki, and more.

A favorite from each season:


Cherry-petal days…
Birds with two legs
Glitter now
Horses gleam with four

- Onitsura


As I picked it up
To cage it…
The firefly
Lit my finger-tips

- Taigi


Nightlong in the cold
That monkey sits
How to catch the moon

- Shiki


Midnight wanderer
Walking through
The snowy street…
Echoing dog-bark

- Shiki

Peter Pauper Press, 1958
