“The crane’s path is lost in snowy trees,
Su’s stele is hidden by tangled vines;
One doesn’t meet the hermit of the groves,
but rather greets the old plum blossoms.

Last night I plucked the lute three times,
and in solitude drew a single river bank;
How to know if the poetic conception was good?
Today I came to your house.

In the ninth lunar month of the year 1832, submitted for the judgement of third elder brother, Master Kangfu, by Tang Yifen.”
