Did You Know?

A cicada clings to a willow branch while two bees fly in the moonlight .


Zhou Yi's calligraphy is across from the painting on leaf six. His colophon reads:

The bright moon emerges through the willow,
The fragrance of flowers is already difficult to retain.
Listening above these tall branches,
I sense that faraway in my native place autumn has arrived.
Obstructed, all the diminished waters flow,
Abruptly the sound of a lute wafts to and fro.
A strong wind, unabated, blows among the willow branches.
