Kobayashi Issa (1763 - 1828) was a poet and lay Buddhist priest. With Basho, Buson and Shiki - the Great Four- Issa is regarded as one of Japan's true haiku masters. This is a new translation of Issa's fine work from Professors John White and Kemmyo Taira Sato, authors of The Buddhist Society's The Haiku of Basho (Spring 2019).
