    It's Chinese so I can't translate unfortunately. If no one picks up here, I'd suggest posting on Reddit which has much higher traffic and likelihood of getting it translated.

    Definitely Chinese! :)
    I can't translate it though, sorry!

    This is a very famous poetry in China originally written by a Chinese poets named Li Shen in Tan dynasty over a thousand years ago, the rough translation (with simplified Chinese):
    悯农 Sympathy for the peasants (Name)
    锄禾日当午,Hoeing millet in mid-day heat,
    汗滴禾下土.Sweat dripping to the earth beneath:
    谁知盘中餐,Do you know the food on your plate,
    粒粒皆辛苦.Each grain was hard-earned.
