     The Image

          The wind blows low on the mountain:

          And strengthens their spirit.

     The Lines

          Setting right what has been spoiled by the mother.
          One must not be too persevering.

          Setting right what has been spoiled by the father.
          There will be little remorse. No great blame.

          Six in the fourth place means:
          Tolerating what has been spoiled by the father.
          In continuing one sees humiliation.

          Sets himself higher goals.
