雨蛙退屈で死ぬことはない   金子兜太

amagaeru taikutsu de shinu kotow a nai

            tree frog

            we will not die

            from boredom

                                                Tohta Kaneko

from “Haiku Dai-Saijiki” (“Comprehensive Haiku Saijiki”), Kadokawa Shoten, Tokyo, 2006

Fay’s Note:  Tohta Kaneko (1919-2018)   ‘amagaeru’ (tree frog) is a summer kigo.
