Little Pictures of Japan -

When I was young, and not so young, I loved to peruse The Book House.  The volumes were my mother's when she was a child, and the nursery story volume was rebound several times.

As part of that set is a book Little Pictures of Japan. I open it now, in honor of spring.  It's a book of haiku.

Hours Well Spent

Months and days I've wasted
  Doing some useless thing -
How few the hours that have been well spent,
  Viewing the flowers in spring!
