Skylark Haikus


 
All the long day-
Yet not long enough for the skylark,
Singing, singing
--Basho
 
Voices
above the white clouds;
skylarks.
--Kyoroku
 
In the midst of the plain
sings the skylark,
Free of all things
--Basho
 
The skylark rises,
The skylark falls,-
How green the barley!
--Onitsura
 
Sneezing,
I lost sight
of the skylark
--Yayu
 
My old village lies
far beyond what we can see,
but there the lark is singing
--Issa
