Were I to Confess, I Wished I Can See You Before I Die, Would You Give Me The Slightest Nod.
Those are one of a tanka that Ishikawa sensei wrote and I love it.I accidentally saw this book at Japan
-Indonesia Expo and when I red the synopsis behind the book somehow I got interested so i went to buy it. Truthfully I am so lucky and excited for I can get a great book with a cheap prize, and the reason I picked this book because of their poems and when I read it (although I'm not finish yet). Basically this book is worth to read, thank you. 

Review: Romaji Diary, And Sad Toys

User Review  - Holly Woodward - Goodreads

Some of his tiny poems are masterpieces. Tragi-comic miniatures that stay with one. The diary and commentary can get you bogged-down. Yes, the previous reviewer is right--he didn't lead an admirable life. But he gave what he could to the reader, so we ahve better fortune than he could. Read full review

About the author (1985)

Ishikawa's first works were published when he was only 19. The son of a Zen priest, he was fired from a teaching job (one in a string of many professions he tried) for participation in a student strike. In his development from a romantic poet to a naturalist writer to a socialist writer, Ishikawa was associated with several literary movements. Today he is known as a poet and diarist.
