  • 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.
