To the Tune of a Variation Of Rinsing Silk Stream

Thousands of light flakes of crushed gold for its blossoms,
And the trimmed jade for its layers of leaves,
This flower has the air of Scholar Yen Fu.
How brilliant!
Plum flowers are too common;
Lilicas, too coarse, when compared with it.
Yes, it is penetrating frangence drives away my fond dreams
of far away places.
How merciless!
