It is Chinese,with a poem from Mao Zedong (Mao Tse-tung)
My reading and translation of the poem,
Poem of the plums
The wind and rain send the spring back,
but the flying snow welcomes the spring.
Although, here is the cliff with hundreds of feet of ice,
and there are the flowering branches, too.
The flavors don't compete for the spring,
they only wait for coming the spring.
When the mountains are full of flowers,
the plum blossoms are the most beautiful among them.
Poetry from Chairman Mao
