Egrets Reading

Need help from craftier people than myself...

I didn't inherit an art gene - at least when it comes to glue and collages, etc.

One of my haiku friends just gave me the most amazing gift - a leaf from Buson's grave in Japan.

I'd like to somehow preserve it and mount it in a frame with a haiku by Buson (ideally in both English and Japanese calligraphy....but that's another project, getting someone to do the calligraphy).

So, does anyone have any ideas how I can do this?

Which Buson haiku should I use?
