Japanese Love-songs

(In the Hokku manner)

The white lotus-flower
Grows in the depths of the pool,

III.

Mist and drizzle of rain.
Where art thou?

IV.

Darkness. Shadows in my soul.
The vision of your face.
Dawn and music.

V.

Hush of night. Perfumed breath of night.
A moth with flaming wings.
Come beloved.
