Matsou Basho #120

Spring departing—
the birds cry out
and the eyes of the fish
are full of tears.

Death is near,
nearly here
or is it merely angst and fear?
 
Courage old man,
you still stand
in this quiet and rugged land.
 
No notes yet... from Death's sad band,
not yet... clutched by his icy hand.

The OP is self-explanatory - short poems of any kind will be welcomed here.
I'll start with a short one from Khlebnikov:

Today I will go once again
Into life, into haggling, into market,
And lead the army of my songs
To duel against the market tide.
