A trip to the lakes and hills in Spring
The title of a 100 meter long landscape painting
With spring comes change in lakes and hills;
Ridges and peaks seem jade, green water is smooth;
Odd ridges and peaks are everywhere, thin clouds are rosy;
Winding paths jogtrot though deep, serene places;
Streams flow slowly, and boats sail swiftly;
Lake waters are calm; boats go again and again
Step onto pavilions to watch the mountains, high and distant;
Listen to water beneath the bridge, clear and close;
Tourists dotted thickly, and horses neighing;
Smoke is unbroken/continuous from kitchen chimneys, chicken and ducks tweet;
Old men invite their friends to wine;
Women and children dizen, and return to their homes;
Temperate breeze, clear sky, people are friendly and kind.
If looking for treasure, take a trip to the lakes and hills.
The purple brush depicts the trip;
The painting is not just intelligent, it is hard work/demanding.
