Poetry: Matsuo Basho - Haiku - A bee - The old pond - The dragonfly - First snow - Links





A bee

A bee
staggers out
of the peony. 



The old pond

Following are several translations
of the 'Old Pond' poem, which may be
the most famous of all haiku:

Furuike ya
kawazu tobikomu
mizu no oto

-- Basho


Literal Translation

Fu-ru (old) i-ke (pond) ya,
ka-wa-zu (frog) to-bi-ko-mu (jumping into)
mi-zu (water) no o-to (sound)


The old pond--
a frog jumps in,
sound of water.

Translated by Robert Hass



Old pond...
a frog jumps in
water's sound.

Translated by William J. Higginson



An old silent pond...
A frog jumps into the pond,
splash! Silence again.

Translated by Harry Behn



There is the old pond!
Lo, into it jumps a frog:
hark, water's music!

Translated by John Bryan



The silent old pond
a mirror of ancient calm,
a frog-leaps-in splash.

Translated by Dion O'Donnol



old pond
frog leaping
splash

Translated by Cid Corman



Antic pond--
frantic frog jumps in--
gigantic sound.

Translated by Bernard Lionel Einbond



Old pond
leap -- splash
a frog.

Translated by Lucien Stryck



The old pond,
A frog jumps in:.
Plop!

Translated by Allan Watts



The old pond, yes, and
A frog is jumping into
The water, and splash.

Translated by G.S. Fraser



The dragonfly

The dragonfly
can't quite land
on that blade of grass


First snow

First snow
falling
on the half-finished bridge.
