A blue and white bowl decorated a love scene. A man falls in love at first sight with a beautiful young woman. He stands outside the wall of her house and bows. The woman feels moved and looks shy. The first line of the poem written in Chinese script reads: 'As soon as I see your beautiful face, all my love pours out.'
