Inscription:
Men's houses keep to the shallow streams;
Mists cover the root of the mountain.
Where should I let my ink flowers fall?
Like the mist-petals, I would leave no trace....[missing characters]
...(vertical and ) horizontal cun strokes mix together withou careful throught. (This is something that) cannot be put in words, nor can it be learnt. It is like the poem by Taibo (Li Bo (701–762):
"The falling leaves collect and again scatter;
The cold crows roost and are frightened away again".
(The artist) can (attain) a similar image.
(Shouping) wrote at the Taihuazhai.
