End Of Year - Winter Haiku

年暮れぬ 笠きて草鞋はきながら
toshi kurenu kasa kite waraji hakinagara
Another year came to an end and I still wear bamboo hat and straw sandals.
Matsuo Basho, 1685

I am unable to upload photos, hopefully the problem will be solved by tomorrow.
You can see waraji in the post on 21 December, "Japanese Traditional Footwear."
