Description

Leaf 6 Zhou Yi's 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.
