Japan

An old courtyard Hidden away In the afternoon.

Grey walks,

Mossy stones,

Copper carp swimming lazily,

And beyond,

A faint toneless hissing echo of rain That tears at my heart.

S

John Gould Fletcher offers a brief history of Japanese poetry, as well as a short, yet vivid, compilation of his own Japanese-inspired poems.
