کتاب یه تعداد خوبی هم نقاشی آب مرکب چینی داره، چاپ باسمه یعنی با مهر چوبی مربوط به قرن هفدهم، که عاشقشونم!
به بالا و به كوه‌سار نمي‌رود آب كه به جدايي رسد
به راه‌ِ نشيب مي‌رود تا با دريا درآميزد

مرد و زن راه‌ِ نشيب يكديگرند

پيوسته با يكديگر جاري شويد و نشيب گيريد تا پيوندگاهِ دريا

و خود را بدان واسپاريد به رضا. خطا نمي‌پويد او
هم از آغاز، اكنون را آماده مي‌شده است
