Fandango’s Friday Flashback • dVerse Poets Pub

Fandango’s Friday Flashback • dVerse Poets Pub. I’ve not been a blogger nearly long enough to be able to go a year back. So this re-post of ‘OpenLinkNight#256’ on #FFF is from December 13, 2019, that I posted on the dVerse Poets Pub.

OpenLinkNight#256 • dVerse Poets Pub

Of all the wild absurdities

With which the heart can cram

Its sad asylum, none’s more daft

Than this mad need, this damn-

Idiot ache to be with you

When I already am.

Kiowara no Fukayabu (early 9th century)

This poem was translated from Japanese
by Graeme Wilson
