a year older
Issa 一茶 1803 age 41 staying in Edo.
toshitori ni tsuru mo oritaru hatake kana
also a year older
the crane flies down...
The season word in this haiku, toshitori, ("growing old") relates to the year's ending; in the traditional Japanese system for counting age, everyone gains a year on New Year's Day. The crane, a symbol of longevity, has gained another year--as has Issa.
