First section of handscroll, "Rock", poem in four lines, five-character meter:
It is just an ordinary rock.
It used to be on the ridge of Mount Tai or Mount Hua.
There the sea of clouds in the sky is pure,
And [the rock] and the snow, both white and cold, keep company.

Second section of handscroll, "Orchid and Bamboo", poem in four lines, seven-character meter:
As beautiful as the wisps of hair on Wenzhun's temples [seen from the back]
As pure as ice or snow, [the orchid] even looks down on the fairy lady.
Certainly its character is matchless.
Not only the fragrance will last forever.
