The Butterflies ... in Basho, The Complete Haiku (translated by Jane Reichhold)

butterfly butterfly
let me ask you about chinese

wake up wake up
I want to be your friend
little sleeping butterfly

a butterfly flies
only in the field
of sunshine

a white poppy
a butterfly tears off a wing
for a keepsake

passing through autumn
a butterfly seems to lick
chrysanthemum dew
