This book makes me feel bad for using Haiku as a comedic device. This book is really good for anyone learning Japanese. It's in English and Japanese with the hiragana over the kanji.
"meditating on the theme of hototogisu (the cuckoo or nightingale), given to her by her haiku master"

translated by Patricia Donegan and Yoshie Ishibashi
