Farrera [4-8] a gunsaku [haiku sequence]

Poem By Gabriel Rosenstock

4. with each call
the cuckoo
melts the snow


5. as though tomorrow
may never dawn -
all day, the swallows


6. an old fortress?
cow dung baking
in the sun


7. how sweet the grass!
the mountain horse
not yet slaughtered


8. mountain stream
hurrying, hurrying
where to?

translated from the Irish by Gabriel Rosenstock
