    • Then neither are these (and many, many other Japanese haiku):

      For one touched by monkey cries
      How is it when a child’s abandoned
      In autumn winds

      or this:

      His life comes to its end;
      The smell of the medicine departs
      Coldly

      The first is by Basho and the second is by Dakotsu (as translated by R.H. Blyth).
