kimonos


.としとへば片手出す子や更衣

asked how old he was,
the boy in the new kimono
stretched out all five fingers

- Kobayashi Issa (1818)



.泣虫と云れてもなく袷哉

called a crybaby
he starts crying...
summer kimono

- Kobayashi Issa (1814)



.寺の児赤かたびらはいつ迄ぞ

temple toddler--
how long will you wear
your little red kimono?

- Kobayashi Issa (year unknown)
