Signature: Signed on the painting by Zhang Feng (upper right corner):
"Who is it gripping an iron staff in the jade spray
The torrent's waters ringing beneath the stone bridge?
Snow, like flowers' souls, flies about without pause;
The spring wind still awaits the mountain man's summons."
Poem and painting are respectfully presented to Master Shih-an.
After becoming drunk, I feel my brush and ink have some spirit. It's
this fine paper and being with an old friend at year's end. This is
indeed an occasion for great happiness. Done on the 15th day
of the 12th month of the gengzi year [January 15, 1661] by
your fellow townsman and "younger brother" Zhang Feng of Shangyüan [Nanking].
The inscription is followed by two artist's seals:
