Collection of Six Haiku

Waking in the night; 
the lamp is low, 
the oil freezing. 

It has rained enough 
to turn the stubble on the field 

Winter rain 
falls on the cow-shed; 
a cock crows. 

The leeks 
newly washed white,- 
how cold it is! 

The sea darkens; 
the voices of the wild ducks 
are faintly white. 

Ill on a journey; 
my dreams wander 
over a withered moor.
