[As] the gentle breeze and jade rain bedew Yingzhou,
In the dancing snow of vivid spring, a pure beauty comes into view,
White silky sleeves fluttering quietly around tender calyxes,
Offering up crystal balls on the Chalcedony Terrace.
The second pentad after Spring Equinox: pear blossoms
Graceful and ethereal are the masses of white snow,
With pure skin and delicate texture yielding pleasant fragrance.
Secluded blossoms, leaning against rocks, flourish day by day,
Powder and kohl in tune, infused with a quiet scent.
The third pentad after Spring Equinox: magnolia
