About the Poem and Writer: This Song Dynasty poem was written by Su Shi (1037-1101). He is one of the best artists in Chiense history and is known for his picturesque paintings, smooth calligraphy, and heartfelt poetry. One style of calligraphy is named after him as well as one style of traditional Chinese paintings. In classic Chinese art it is common to combine poetry with paintings and calligraphy. An artist will paint a picture in the background and in the foreground inscribe it with a poem in calligraphy. Combining paintings with poems make both more meaningful. This poem was written by Su Shi specifically for one of his most famous paintings, titled "Spring River Morning Sense." In it he expresses the simple pleasures and beauty of springtime.
