about

I particularly like this poem; it appears to be Ryōkan’s response to a famous haiku of Bashō (1644–1694):

古池や
蛙飛び込む
水の音

furuike ya
kawazu tobikomu
mizu no oto

an old pond;
a frog jumps in
sound of water

lyrics

新いけや
かはずとびこむ
音もなし


araike ya
kawazu tobikomu
oto mo nashi

a new pond;
a frog jumps in
no sound at all
