This is a citation from the Zhou dynasty poet Zi Zhi (紫芝)

Here is the reading and my rough translation、

事去空千載 何曾有若人
只應煙樹裏 便是永和春
Things have gone for a thousand of years, but
why has a man been here for such a long time,
just like a tree in fog,
He might be the eternal pleasant spring.

Colophon;
杜保華先生雅正启功
To Mr. Du Baohua from Qi Gong
Upper seal,
启功之印 - Seal of Qi Gong
Lower seal,
元白 - Yuanbai - Courtesy name
Starting seal,
前賢句 - "Former worthy sentence" meaning

Qi Gong 启功 1912-2005
Native of Beijing. 9th generation grandson of Emperor Yongzheng. Was a famous Chinese painter, calligrapher, educator and connoisseur.

With regards,
I.Nagy

Could this be an authentic work and are there ways to find out?
Kind regards,

Peter

your picture is very small, but it might be possible. The nature of this is also not what a forgerer would try to produce.
Unfortunately is his simple style a rather easy one to imitate.
Authentication is subject to the judgement of experts. Three experts = three opinions.
