This is the 4th time I painted a picture to match the same poem and the music I created for the poem since 2007. The last time I painted the painting on the Chinese New Year in my travel in Wuxi.

I do hope that you enjoy this painting and it will be some help with you to learn more about Chinese culture and language.


Main Meaning of the Poem

A Little Pool

By Yang Wangli (Song Dynasty)

The silent mouth of a spring “cherishes” the thin streamlet,
The shadow of the trees is reflected in the water, it “loves” the scene in the sunshine.
A little lotus leaf just appears with a sharp tip,
Quickly, a dragonfly lands on it.

小池 - Xiǎo Chí

杨万里 ( ) - Yáng Wànlǐ ( Sòng )

泉眼无声惜细流 - Quányǎn wúshēng xī xìlíu,
树阴照水爱晴柔 - shùyīn zhàoshuǐ ài qíng róng。
小荷才露尖尖角 - Xiǎo hé cái lù jiānjiān jiǎo,
早有蜻蜓立上头 - zǎoyǒu qīngtíng lì shàngtóu。
