Recent painting (2020) by Master Tam. The inscription says:
A head of white hair
Recalling the old times in the mountains.
The ring of clouds
The meandering streams
In each other's embrace.
The wind and the water
Whistling and rolling,
Questions and answers reverberate.
Sleepless well into the night.
庚子上元無睡，寫成此紙，實有懷人之意。錫永並記。Sleepless on the night of the Lantern Festival, the year of Gengzi, became this painting. Thinking of people from the past, noted by Shek Wing.
