I can identify with this one!
This is really lovely. Very much in the traditional Japanese style, it reminds me of Issa's haiku:A morning glory vine,all blossoming, has thatchedthis hut of mine.and this one by Chiyo, a woman haiku poet living from 1703 - 1775:By morning gloriesI have had my well-bucket captured-and I borrow my water!
Just beautiful! It reminds me of the famous "Oh Morning Glory!" haiku by Chiyo-ni, which I now see in a different translation in the comment above mine. Here's the translation I know:Oh, the morning glory!It has captured my well bucketI must ask elsewhere for water.
oh yes this one os lovely.
I know it as thisMorning Glorywinding around the well ropeI will borrow waterI imagine this is a western interpretation..... I really like the Oh! in your version.
