Basho

My wife just found a scrap of paper, with my writing on it.  It’s a haiku I wrote, many years ago, and have since posted in modified form because I couldn’t remember it exactly.  This is the original version.  I think it’s the better of the two.
Old Basho, alone
A thousand straw-sandaled miles
Look!  Pearls by the road
