Poet Qin Guan (1049-1100) A Nice DreamContent: A spring trail, rain fills the flowers, the flowers have painted the mountains in spring colors. I go to the place where the stream flows deeply, there are thousands of small orioles. As I watch, flying clouds turn into dragons and snakes, twisting, turning into a clear, emerald sky. I lay down, feeling dizzy, in the shadow of ancient creeping vines, I can not make out the south or the north.
