Brilliant moon,
is it true that you too
must pass in a hurry?
Issa











Above the veil
of mist, from time to time
there lifts a sail.
Gakoku





Nine time arising
to see the moon
whose solemn pace
marks yet only midnight.
Basho














Kisa Lagoon--
the morning sun rising
autumn dusk
Issa


Brother of W. Corwin Chase. The brothers taught themselves the art of the color woodcut in the mid 1920's using Frank Morley Fletcher's manual and produced magnificent color woodblocks for only about ten years.
