The artist’s poem at the upper right, which describes the gentleman resting in a pavilion, is loosely translated: “Several houses are located among the stones and pine trees / Although there are wooden doors, they are always closed / The pavilion along the river after the clean rain appears quiet in autumn / Sitting with leisure and looking at the clouds returning to the mountain on the other shore.”
