However bird songs are heard

like bold ink scratchings
haiku ancestors, unknown
bird songs are yet heard

Audax scratchings quasi atramento
Haiku et maiorum suorum ignotum
carmina sunt avem tamen audisti

Scratchings as bold ink
Haiku Poetry and those
of their own ancestors are pardoned

However, bird songs are heard
