歌川広重画 月に雁 Wild Geese Flying under the Full Moon

 

Originally in Edo era, this one is re-carved edition made in unknown date. The full moon on the eighth month of the lunar calendar, the peak of autumn, has always been special to East Asian poets. Both the poem and image here capture the moment when wild geese are seen flying across the full moon: 


こむな夜が 又も有うか 月に雁

 

Konna yo ga 
mata mo arō ka 
tsuki ni kari 

 

Will there ever again 
be such a marvelous night!
Wild geese against the moon. 

—Trans. John T. Carpenter
