Flowers grow on land, water, trees and grasses, to love just a few.
Tau Yuan Ming in the Jin Dynasty loved chrysanthemum only.
From Tang on, people were all attracted to peony.
I just love lotus because she grows in mud, yet never contaminates with it.
She floats on waving water, yet never dances with it.
The branchless stem is hollow inside but straight outside.
Her faint fragrance reaches far and she stands erect in water, fair and graceful.
She can only be appreciated afar but cannot be played arbitrarily
I call chrysanthemum the hermit
peony the rich
and lotus the gentleman of all flowers.
Ouch, fondness of chrysanthemum was rare seem after Tau,
and fondness of peony is prevalent,
but who shares the same fondness of lotus as me?!
