Artist's inscription, signature, and 2 seals:
The time of Six Dynasties was full of eccentrics.
They took refuge in Daoism or Buddhism.
Thus came [the pair of] Zhidun and the Daoist priest Xu [Xun]:
Their sensibilities and ideals were fully in tune.
Under a tall pine and ancient cliff,
They chatted away all day long.
Grand ambitions were cast away like the flowing stream
In quest for linked poetic lines.
Practical affairs were outside of their concerns.
Thousands of autumns later, I come to realize the truth.
Regarding the Chan Master Wuyun, his way is ancient and his actions pure. He has not involved himself in worldly affairs. He loves landscape and also belles lettres. In his old age, his spirit exceeds that of a king. He and I share much in common, he being a priest and I a layman. Consequently, I painted this Zhi Xu qing yan tu, and hope that he would enlighten me.
Diesou Lan Ying, in the end of the seventh month, [the year of] kuiwei .
