Edith Shiffert, called by Poetry Nippon 'one of Kyoto's living national-and international-treasures,' here writes brief poems in the form of traditional Japanese haiku for each month of the year. Taken as a whole, the poems describe an American woman's twenty five-year sojourn in Kyoto. Although living amid continuous change, the poet has chosen to help us see the things that have outlasted all changes : bamboo groves and the red leaves of autumn, waterfalls and quiet ponds, and, of course, the mountains that surround the city -Hiei, Yoshida, and others-With the poet we walk through the forests and along the trails of these mountains, paying homage to the spirits of those who have walked there before.
