Find that haiku, 日本語で

I'm looking for the original Japanese version of a haiku by Kobayashi Issa that I've seen only in translation as follows: "Moon, plum blossoms, this, that, and the day goes." Kana or romaji or anything really would be great; the Google has failed me thus far. I also can't find it on the big Issa site here. Thanks!
