Peaks and hills splashed in green reflect / the sunset glow; / frosty trees in vast woods conjure up an embroidered drape. / The tenth month on a sunny river feels like the third month; / reed flowers can fly like willow catkins.
Poem by Ri Nikka [Ch. Li Rihua; 1565–1635]
, transcribed in the first winter month of 1826. Futai Kaiseki
