Bent in perfect curve
By snow

backache --
bamboo bent low
with snow

(a senryu)

bamboo --
wishing the snow
to get bent!

Matsuo Basho

shiore fusu ya yo wa sakasama no yuki no take

withered and bent over,
the whole world upside down:
bamboo in snow
Tr. Barnhill

Written in 寛文7年, Basho age 24.
Most probably he had been to the funeral of child of his friend. The poor parents are devastated and bend like the bamboo in snow.
