Translation for a scroll

Hi, would it be easy to get 'As mysterious as night, As powerful as thunder' put on a scroll in Mandarin? I am going to order a few scrolls but I want this as a present. It describes my friend beautifully.

Cheers,
Mark

I'll pass this on to the translator. If it will only take her 10-15 minutes, we can do it for free. Otherwise, a translation fee (of about $20) will be needed. Some phrases like this are easy, and others can take hours of contemplation. It can be like composing poetry, so getting it to sound just right is the trick.
