You bloom left and right; your fragrances fly,
Frankly in the deep yard, with your spirits so high.
How many painters are there in the world,
To your true nature that they can describe?

As usual first I created it in Chinese then translated into English . it rhymes in the original version. thanks for your clicks.

Loved the imagery of fragrances "fly"ing. And the notion of painters trying to capture that which was so beautifully "painted" in nature.

Thanks Xiaoman for sharing,
