I did a little parody of Basho's most famous poem about an old pond. Here's one translation by Robert Hass:
The old pond--You can find any number of translations online, here's one site, which has a few, plus a lengthy discussion of the poem. I'm thinking I may do a frog theme for the next Poetry Friday.
a frog jumps in,
sound of water.
Once I found the parody, I thought it begged for illustration!
