加賀の千代女さん 俳句

今回、ありがたくも舞を奉納させていただいた加賀の千代女さんは、有名な「朝顔や」の他にも、素晴らしい俳句をたくさん作っておられます。1760年、第十一回目の朝鮮通信使に贈るため、加賀藩の命により千代女さんが書かれた二十一句の俳句より、好きなものをいくつか挙げてみたいと思います。

「福わらや塵さえけさのうつくしさ」
「唐崎の昼は涼しき雫かな」
「百生(ひゃくなり)やつる一筋の心より」

The poet Chiyo has made many beautiful poems other than the most famous one of ”Morning glory.” I would like to introduce three haiku from the twenty one haiku that she wrote as a gift to a friendly delegation from Korea in 1760 under the order of Kaga domain government.

Clean straw to spread on the entrance for the new year
Even the dust on it looks
So beautiful

Noon time in Karasaki
Wind brows from Hiei mountain
Dew drops bring coolness

Hundred gourds
All from
One heart of vine
