At my home, I wash the inkstone under the tree by the pond
When the flowers bloom, one can see the color of pale ink on the petals
I don't need to praise the color of flowers
I only care about the the pure scent that fills the heaven and earth
A seven character quatrain titled "The Ink Plum" (墨梅）composed by Wang Mian (王冕) of the Yuan Dynasty
歸性照 - Guī Xìngzhào - Surname and given name
忄角 炅召 Xìngzhào
(Bot characters are alternative forms; 忄角→性、
□静 - □jìng - Pseudonym
(I can't decipher the first character)
It is battered, but seems to be original.
