While walking alone the embankment, with willow twigs floating and fragrance in the air, people leaning on railing can watch the fish jump out of the water in the sunlight, with birds singing in the courtyard; while boating on the lake, people to their hearts' content can have moments of peace and pleasure in noisy surroundings, with waves rippling, shadows swaying and lotus blossoming.

The answers will be appreciated.
