An illustration for the story Ballads of Four Seasons: Spring by the author Li Bai

The lovely Lo Fo of the western land
Plucks mulberry leaves by the waterside.
Across the green boughs stretches out her white hand;
In golden sunshine her rosy robe is dyed.
'my silkworms are hungry, I cannot stay.
Tarry not with your five-horse cab, I pray.'


A Song of an Autumn Midnight is the title of Li Bai's "autumn" poem in this series.
