    The subject of narcissus is relatively rare in the oeuvre of Qi Baishi. Of the few instances of the artist rendering this springtime flower, most date from the 1920s and 1930s, a likely dating for the present work as well. Translated in the 1993 publication, the poem reads:

    Cold snow, chilly wind, cracked ice:
    This is the season when the narcissus blooms.
    With whom will the flowers speak of friendship,
    Under the trees, the bright moon and delicate plum blossoms?
