Inscription: Between the slender bamboos are the blooming plum blossoms, their flickering reflections are cast on the deep and limpid creek. The breeze carries it with the icy fragrance of plum blossoms, on the trees are perching birds. A small boat takes me here, where I find the spring. I send a boy to the village to buy some wine, which wine can be poured at will. I drink to my heart’s content and sing out loud in the ancient woods. The bright moon shines in the dark blue sky, frosty air starts to raid my cloths. I return to my quiet cottage and continue to sing by myself while playing the zither.
