BD. Edmund Blunden

139. At Tsuruya in Kobe. In Sone (179d), 1960, p. 58.

Occasional verse that recalls Japanese friends Kosai, Kashiwagura, and Sone. According to Sone, the poem was written on the day Blunden departed Japan at the end of his first stay, 14 July 1927, inscribed in pencil in Sone’s copy of Poets and Poetry of the Century, as the Japanese companions and Ralph Hodgson (Ap) prepared to see Blunden off at the harbour at Kobe.
