Though I May Vanish

Skating and lunch today were very enjoyable. While I was down there, I thought I'd take the opportunity to wander the Freer for a bit. I was very taken by this translation of a Chinese inscription on a scroll:

Like the dew

that clings for life

on hare's foot fern

so I, too, rely on you,

though I may vanish.
