Footnote: Kyoka For Haiku Master Basho, 4

Old, warted frog:  your
splash's noise was really just

momentary but

not momentous.  Basho's poem
will give you your only fame.

I love your witty footnotes

I love your witty footnotes to Basho's immortal poems. This one is a flash of brilliance. Very clever.

 

The best acknowledgement any old frog could hope for.
