Matsuo Basho Snow Poems

  • 1.
    The first snow
    the leaves of the daffodil
    bending together

  • 2.
    This first fallen snow
    is barely enough to bend

  • 3.
    First snow

  • 4.

    and IĆ¢??ll show you something wonderful:
    a big ball of snow!

  • 5.
    Even that old horse
    is something to see this
    snow-covered morning
