At Jingci Temple Seeing Off Lin Zifang at Dawn
Yang Wanli 1124-1206

Finally West Lake in the month of July
The scene isn't like any other time of year
Sky-high lotus leaves are an endless blue-green
And their sunlit flowers are a different kind of red
 
Xiǎo Chū Jìngcísì Sòng Lín Zǐfāng

Jiē tiān lián yè wúqióng bì,
Yìng rì héhuā biéyàng hóng.
