高砂や

一茶 1813

高砂や鬼追出も歯ぬけ声

David’s English

Takasago--
shouting away demons
a toothless one too

by Issa, 1813

Takasago is famous for pine tree-covered islands. During the end-of-year bean-scattering ritual, it is a custom to shout, "Luck indoors, demons begone!" In this haiku, someone without teeth joins in the shouting. This could be a self-portrait, since Issa lost his last tooth two years earlier, in 1811.
