Poem by Izumi Shikibu (976?-1033?) in the handwriting style of Emperor Go-Tsuchimikado translated and painted by Li Izumi. This classical Japanese poem is read:
Haru no no wa
Yuki nomi tsumu to
Ohiitzuru mono wa
Wakana nari keri
Although I saw
Only snow piling up
In the spring fields
What sprouted up
Was the young greens
