Japanese Hokkus

1.
Suppose the stars
Fall and break?—Do they ever sound
Like my own love song?

4.
Some one at my door?
Go away, go,—go away!
Good night, sir or madam.

18.
Is it a fallen leaf?
That’s my soul sailing on
The silence of Life.

29.
Full of faults, you say.
What beauty in repentance!
Tears, songs . . . thus life flows.

43.
Lo, light and shadow
Journey to the home of night:
Thou and I—to love!

77.
Is there anything new under the sun?
Certainly there is.
See how a bird flies, how flowers smile!
