Keep A Foothold - Poem by Luo Zhihai

立足

秋风竹叶弹新调
夏雨荷花诵旧词
季友伯兄轻智巧
为人处世重诚 实


Keep A Foothold

The autumn wind and the bamboo leaves played the new tune
The summer rain and the lotus flowers chanted the old lyrics

Deep friendship and strong sense of righteousness
despise slickness
Man in the world importance of honesty
