Inscription: Artist’s inscription and signature (8 columns in semi-cursive script)

Standing alone on a mountain bridge I gaze at the bright moon.
The running stream gurgles amid stealthily rising chill.
High on someone’s pavilion people are drinking wild and loud.
The sound of flutes lingers into the middle of the night.
Inscribed on the painting by Banmu [Gong Xian] [1].

獨立山橋看月明,流泉汨汨悄寒生。
誰家樓上人轟酒,半夜猶聞吹篴聲。

半畝題畫。
