Haiku by Kobayaski Issa

 Here are three haiku from Kobayashi Issa, a haiku master poet from the late 1700s and early 1800s:

O snail
Climb Mount Fuji,
But slowly, slowly!

Trusting the Buddha, good and bad,
I bid farewell
To the departing year.

Everything I touch
with tenderness, alas,
pricks like a bramble. , Stillwater Junior High School....
