after: 3

autumn leaves
and a touch of gray
in my hair

Soseki (1867-1916)

A very free rendering. Soseki is generally regarded as the major Japanese novelist of his era. Some of his works have been translated into English, among them Kokoro, Botchan, and I Am a Cat.

For an explanation of "afters," see the post for Nov. 2, 2010.
