Yosa Buson and the Sunset

At sunset
The sound of pheasant shootingl
Near the spring mountainside.



Having reddened the plum blossoms,
The sunset attacks
Oaks and pines.

mountain's red leaves
the setting sun returns
to the sky

yama momiji irihi o sora e kaesu kana

山紅葉入日を空へ返す哉

by Issa, 1792

Literally, Issa says that the autumn foliage "returns the setting sun to the sky" (irihi wo sora e kaesu). Is he saying that the leaves on the mountain are so bright and red, the setting sun has returned to the sky?

My earlier translation was freer: the mountain's red leaves unset the sun

Shinji Ogawa has also mulled over this haiku. He suggests that perhaps "the red leaves reflect the rays of the evening sun to the sky; that is why the sky glows so red."

Based on this theory, he translates: the mountain's red leaves return the sunbeam to the sky

In his more literal French version, Jean Cholley has the mountain maples make the setting sun "remonter" ("go up again");
