View topic - Japanese Poetry
I wanted to ask your advice regarding a suitable Japanese poem that I could have a shot at handwriting for my wife's anniversary present.
A famous Japanese (love) poem would be perfect. I have no idea about Japanese poetry other than a few Haiku. I would prefer a poem about 2-3 stanzas long, so that it would fit neatly into an A4 frame. I am going to have a bash at calligraphy.
I am JLPT 5, so a translation would be awesome as well.
Know of any good sites that I may peruse?
Thanks in advance.

Upon the path of dreams
My feet don't rest,
Constantly trailing to you, yet
In reality, a single glimpse:
Not even that have I had of you
