Inscription: Artist’s inscription and signature (3 columns in semi-cursive script)
In steamy summer the days are unbearably long;
With a linen kerchief and a palm-leaf fan, I recline on a rattan couch;
In the flowers' shade infused with water vapor,
Where else in the world could you find such a paradise?
