This is a reading of a haiku by famed haiku poet Matsuo Bashō (1644 – 1694).
Chi ni taore / ne ni yori hana no / wakare kana
My translation attempt:
Fallen to the earth
the flower's final farewell
rests upon its roots
My mother did this reading. The haiku is read four times in succession. The third time is very slow so every syllable can be heard clearly.
