Welcome Rain in a Spring Night was written by Du Fu in a cottage beside the Huanhua Creek in Chengdu. It was well-liked by later generations. At the time Du Fu has resided in Sichuan for two years, due to a drought in Shaanxi. He farmed and grew vegetables and flowers on his own. He spent so much time with the farmers and enjoyed life in the countryside, which caused his deep love for the spring rain. By writing this poem, he described the fine scenery on a spring night when rain moisturizes everything on earth, expressing his joy.
The flowing lines under the writer are natural and smooth, the structure is complex but ordered. He used modern brushstrokes to interpret the traditional artistic conception, demonstrating an interesting blending of ancient and modern, while through the frankness within the lines, we can feel Du Fu’s delight from this timely rain that everybody has longed for.
