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
