炭の香に待つことしばしありにけり   日野春城

sumi no ka ni matsu koto shibashi arinikeri

            scent of charcoal

            I am waiting

            for a short while

                        Sojo Hino

from “Nihon Dai-Saijiki” (“Japanese Comprehensive Saijiki”) ,  edited by Shuoshi Mizuhara, Shuson Kato and Kenkichi Yamamoto, published by Kodansha, Tokyo, Japan, 1981

Fay’s Note:   Sojo Hino (1901-1956)    ‘sumi’ (charcoal) is a winter kigo.
