Signature: Inscribed on the painting by Lu Zhi (upper right corner)
"I hear you have opened up a 'Tao path' near the ocean,
Where clouds of leaves and frost-covered flowers vie in wondrous splendor.
I too have built a new residence at Zhixing Mountain,
May I share some of your autumn colors on my eastern hedge."
[Trans. by Wen Fong and Mike Hearn, 1982]
