Sparrow

Yosa Buson was a Japanese poet who lived from 1716 to 1783. He traveled all over Japan. Finally he got married at age 45 and had one daughter.

The sparrow is singing,
its small mouth
open.

-- Yosa Buson

Here is a bookmark I made of this haiku. I took the photo of a sparrow, naturally :).
