Concluding the 49th Year

月花や四十九年のむだ歩行
tsuki hana ya shijū ku nen no muda hokō

Under moon and flowers,
Forty-nine years
of fruitless wandering.

– Issa

世を旅に代かく小田の行きもどり
yo wo tabi ni shiro kaku oda no yukimodori

Journeying through the world,
To and fro, to and fro,
Harrowing the small field.

– Bashō

Thanks Y.

    I have a feeling that if you bought a small island many of us would move there ;)

    Happy Birthday!
