Since I regard myself as a musicologist, the couplet must have something to do with music. This year I compose a pair of lines which may be translated roughly as
"Southern school and northern style win a standing ovation (南音北管滿堂彩);The handwritting may not be perfect, but I hope the couplet bring me some good luck in the year of the rabbit—the year of my zodiac sign.
Court music and secular ditties be praised throughout seasons (雅樂俗謠四季紅)."
Gong Xi Fa Cai from cold England.
May the Year of the Rabbit bring you Prosperity, Good Health and Happiness!
Best wishes from DeeBee
