This self-titled seven-character poem is a poem: "Never painted orchid (mispen"plum") flowers in my life, and I don't know Gushan virgin scholar's family. Today's plum and bamboo painting, cold heart full of haze. Banqiao." Jun's "Zheng Xie's Seal" and "Yangzhou Xinghua People" two seals. There is no seal of identification.
Bamboo is Zheng Xie's best performance theme. He can capture the dynamics and charm of bamboo branches and leaves swaying in the wind with fascination and vividness. At the same time, the noble, elegant and tenacious nature of bamboo can best reflect Zheng Xie's upright character. Zheng Xie's painting of plum is only this one, but because of his deep artistic foundation, he can also play freely in the performance of plum, petals as the center of the stroke, although its shape is different, but the natural stroke, smooth circle line, outlined the vigorous vitality of the flower. Plum and green bamboo in moistening ink reflect their different beauty in contrast.
