        Selected Haiku by Issa

        Originally filmed at the Dodge Poetry Festival, this video segment from Poetry Everywhere features the former U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Hass reading a translation of haiku by the 18th century Japanese poet, Kubayashi Issa. A collection of eight short haiku present vivid, specific, and often funny perceptions of everyday experiences.

        The full text of this poem will be available soon at the Poetry Foundation.

        This media asset comes from Poetry Everywhere.
