Ode to Winter Solstice
Winter solstice divides Zi month into two halves.
Heaven’s heart has not changed at this point.
First yang yao starts right here.
The ten thousands of living things are not born yet.
Good wine is a little dilute.
High notes are just rare.
If anyone does not believe this,
Please put your inquiries to Pao Xi.
