游僧
The Travelling Monk

Inscription by artist:
遊僧葫蘆頭額弄虛玄
步至人皆以白頭
四海行完何駐足
僧顏相若是閱仙

The shape of his head is not common,
But it hides plenty of uncanny wisdom.
Different from others with heads of white hair,
He travels carefree leisurely everywhere.

松下高士
Scholar under Pine Tree

Inscription by artist:
不惯折腰畊亦宜
身心自在有誰知
餘生難得干戈後
放眼形骸任騁馳

Unwilling to be obsequious, rather a farmer be,
Not a conformist, free and unrestrained, none to see.
From the turbulent warring years, remaining life flee,
Let go, nothing matters, let the spirit gallop free.
