The boy in the new kimono seems dignified- shy yet friendly, which is a pleasing combination combined with the excitement and innocence of youth, ringing with emotion abounding at the freshness of the constant renewal traditionally in cycles.

I think i t may be the little boy's birthday, which would explain why he was asked the question and why he has a new kimono. This is just speculation though, I don't know much about Issa, in fact I only started reading his work and Buson's this week.
