Ice Melts in the Wind

The most excellent Larry Hammer released Ice Melts in the Wind this week, a gorgeous translation of seasonal Japanese poetry.

[Ice Melts in the Wind cover]The water I cupped
in my hands, drenching my sleeves,
has long been frozen—
today, with the start of spring,
will it melt in the wind?

Find out more about Ice Melts in the Wind, and about where you can buy a copy, here. Do share with others who might enjoy it!
