"Little Plum Blossom of Hill Garden" (山園小梅). The original Chinese text as well as a translation follows:

眾芳搖落獨暄妍,
�� 斷風情向小園。
疏影橫斜水清淺,
暗香浮動月黃昏。
霜禽欲下先偷眼,
粉蝶如知合斷魂。
幸有微吟可相狎,
不� �檀板共金樽。
When everything has faded they alone shine forth,
encroaching on the charms of smaller gardens.
Their scattered shadows fall lightly on clear water,
their subtle scent pervades the moonlit dusk.
Snowbirds look again before they land,
butterflies would faint if they but knew.
Thankfully I can flirt in whispered verse,
I don't need a sounding board or winecup.
Dimensions: 6" tall x5 1/8" at widest point
