To Go with Shih K'o's Painting of an Old Man Tasting Vinegar

Old lady Shih, braving acerbity, pokes in her three-foot beak;
old man Shih, vinegar-tasting, face in a hundred wrinkles:
who knows how it feels to scrunch up your shoulders, shivering clear to the bone?
A painting not to be surpassed even by the brush of Master Wu!
