My father was reciting some Japanese poems while he waited for his operation to keep a peaceful mind.

I asked him about the poet who was quit famous ,because I hadn't been able to remember the name.
He immediately said that his name was "Ryoukan(良寛)".

I hear that the poem expresses the moment people die using a metaphor and says that we can't hide anything when we die.

"A tinted maple leaf is whirling, it has to show the flip side as well when it falls."
I was fascinated by those poems which have an air of reality when I was younger,but it's a shame that I can't remember most of them.
