Celebrate Asian American/Pacific Islander Month with all the poems from Drifting Flowers of the Sea and Other Poems, self published by Sadakichi Hartmann in 1904. 
Carl Sadakichi Hartmann, born on November 8, 1867 in Nagasaki, was a poet, playwright, and art critic. Among the first to introduce Western readers to Japanese forms such as the haiku and tanka, he was the author of many books, including My Rubaiyat (Self-published) and Tanka and Haikai: Japanese Rhythms (Self-published, 1916). He died on November 22, 1944.
