A spring scene

"Liangjiang taoxi" 兩槳桃溪 (Two oars along the peach brook); album leaf by Li Shizhuo 李世倬 (1687-1770)

Gentle breezes waft through a host of fragrances

That one by one come into bud.

Pear [blossoms] white [as] snow competing in virginity;

Peach [blossoms] red [as] fire just set ablaze.

Across the river come two skiffs,

At dusk, as wind and waves rise.

My spring view
