最是橙黄橘绿时。

A Poem Given to My Friend Liu Jingwen as a Present
Su Shi

Lotus leaves have withered hence they can not keep off the rain,
Chrysanthemums have died but their stalks still live despite frost.
The best time and scene of the year you have to remember
Is the time when tangerines are green and oranges golden.
