Peel Slowly and See

In Karuizawa, there is a rock transcribed with a haiku by Basho:


Rendered most unpoetically in English as:

"In the morning the snow lies thick on the ground.
Not only people, but horses seem to be elegant."

So I took a stab:

"In the fresh snow of morning
Even the horses 
Have a certain elegance."

On the turntable:  Lynyrd Skynyd, "One More From the Road"
