Poetry which inspires me; Women poets of Japan.

The first poet of the day isn’t exactly a poet rather a collection of Japanese poets. I remember first reading Japanese poetry when I was sixteen my father had this book Women Poets of Japan which combined the collections of poetry dating as far back as the Tokugawa period there was some lovely Freeform poetry as well as traditional structures including Haiku (haiku was prevalent during the Tokugawa period) and Tanka styles. http://books.google.co.uk/books/about/Women_Poets_of_Japan.html?id=0BMQwLapofkC&redir_esc=y

 I can no longer find my copy but at least it is still in print.
