Fountain of Wine (II)
I still remember West Mountain:
Three bamboo groves in front, shady temple in rear.
I’ve visited the Pavilion of Cold Fountain,
Where summer’s cool as autumn clear.
I’ve often seen white apes climb up high trees.
Where are they gone after long, long cry?
Can I find West Mountain in the picture, please?
The painted mountain has no real peaks high.
The first piece uses the phrase “Fountain of Wine (II)” to describe the coolness of Lingyin Temple and Lingquan Pavilion with their ancient trees; the second piece uses white apes climbing the trees and whistling away to describe the coldness and quietness of Lingyin Mountain, and finally the beauty of the peaks of Lingyin Mountain is contrasted by the fact that the painting is not as beautiful as the real scene. The lyrics are subtle and calm, and the scenery is painted by white description, imagination and contrast, which makes it quiet and magical and naturally beautiful.
