    • POEM: Basho's Haiku by Lorraine Margueritte Gasrel Black (11/25/2008 2:29:00 AM)

      Hi Lorraine
      You asked me for my opinion.
      To be honest with you, your versions don't excite my sensibilities.
      I am sorry if this offends as I do not mean to.
      But you did ask.
      Basho's original was evocative.
      I find your haikus to be descriptive.
      You were game to try though.
      I wouldn't have.
      To me it would be like trying to repaint the Mona Lisa.
      Regards
      Dick

    • POEM: The Old Pond by Matsuo Basho (2/23/2005 5:36:00 AM)

      The only translation worth the effort is that of Alan Watts. The euphony of the last line would have made the inscrutable Basho smile.
