- According to Blyth, Tairo, "who died in 1778, was a pupil of Buson, originally a samurai, but later a haikai teacher."
Here are some of his haiku translated by Blyth:
tabibito no zeni otoshitaru shimizu kana
Has dropped some money into it.
tomoshibi ni koureru fude wo kogashi keri
The frozen brush
In the flame of the lamp.
(alternate translation by Blyth)
The frozen brush
In the lamp-flame.
(Blyth points out that he ruined the brush while attempting to thaw it. Blyth calls this haiku "...and expression of loneliness, inevitable, and of no ulterior meaning.")
omoidete niwa haku haru no yuube kana
Suddenly thinking of it,
I went out and was sweeping the garden:
A spring evening.
yamakage ya na no hana sakinu hara suginu
In the shade of the hill,
Rape-flowers have bloomed;
Spring is over.
botan orishi chichi no ikari zo natsukashiki
On breaking one, my father's anger!
Now I yearn for it.
yama-kaze ya arare fukikomu uma no mimi
The mountain blast!
The hail is driven
Into the horse's ear.
te ni modoru taka no manako ni irihi kana
In the eye of the falcon
That returned to my hand.
