About Me

My photo
Thanks to a residency at EcoHealth, my verse these days finds inspiration in the specter of future pandemics; for my dissertation at LMU München, where I tutor composition and edit a poetry weekly, I'm anatomizing the prosody of E. A. Robinson's sonnets—I also teach at MVHS and lead the Amerikahaus Literary Circle.


Frog Poem

by Matsuo Bashō
Translated by R. H. Blyth

The old pond:
a frog jumps in, –
the sound of the water.

Note:  A recitation can be heard here.
