名月や

名月や横に寝る人おがむ人

harvest moon--
some are stretched out
some praying

Issa, 1821 age 59.
Originally, I envisioned only two people in the scene: "next to the sleeping man/ a praying man." Shinji Ogawa, however, visualizes more people: "some are lying down/ some praying." Several people, not just two, would typically attend a traditional Japanese moon-gazing party.
