“The jade-green waves are clear and light,
and the boatman is off among the mulberries;
The time is just right to seek a poem
when everything in the boat is still;
The maples leaves have scattered
and the mountain’s reflection wastes away;
The thatched gate across the way is quiet,
the setting sun is autumn cold.

During spring of the year 1854 I decided to enlarge a work by Zhao Songxue (Zhao Mengfu) in response to an elegant request from my venerated elder brother Sou the Sixth and ask for his judgement. Written now by his younger brother Li Xuiyi, called Zijian, from Haiyan.”
