He served the emperor for much of his life and showed his patriotic love for his own country faithfully during times of distress and trouble. This attractive poem is almost like a painting of words. It beautifully described the early summer. In it you can see the lotus flower just as a small bud emerges. There on the bud, a dragonfly is already standing on it and enjoying the fresh air.
