Autumn Haiku

Herbstnahen
Der Herbst ist gekommen!
Hat er nicht eben
den Vorhang leise bewegt?

Hattori Ransetsu (1654 – 1707)

Autumn approaching
Autumn has come!
Hasn’t he just
gently moved the curtain?

Hattori Ransetsu (1654 – 1707)
You yellow chrysanthemums! – Japanese worldly wisdom – Adaptations of japanese Haiku by Anna von Rottauscher. 1939, Publisher: W. Scheuermann
