Poem - Isamu Yoshii's Poem & Rose


A rose from my death metal hubby & a hand written poem from my grandmother

Did you have a happy Valentine's day?
”墨を磨り 麻紙展
べて 何を書かむ

試筆に戀の歌は、
ふさわず”
 
-- 吉井勇

My ink is ready, paper on the desk,
what shall I write,

for the first stroke, 
a love poem is nonsense.

-- Isamu Yoshii
