It is easy to go down into Hell; night and day, the gates of dark Death stand wide; but to climb back again, to retrace one’s steps to the upper air – there’s the rub, the task.

Death Poem: Yukio Mishima

Yukio Mishima, 1956

 

 

A small night storm blows
Saying ‘falling is the essence of a flower’
Preceding those who hesitate

A death poem, by Moriya Sen'an

A death poem, by Moriya Sen’an

 

Bury me when I die

beneath a wine barrel

in a tavern.

With luck

the cask will leak.

~~~~~

Ware shinaba

sakaya no kame no

shita ni ikeyo

moshi ya shizuku no

moriyasennan

I must say, to die with one’s sword still sheathed is most regrettable.
