I Ching
by Martin Burke


receptive earth and joyous lake

perseverance has supreme success
yet, in the eighth month,
there will be misfortune

the earth and the lake
the superior man
does not slacken to teach
and is without limits in his tolerance


the approach
perseverance brings good fortune

everything furthers

let there be no grieving
there is no blame

the complete approach
there is no blame

it is wise for the prince
to have a right approach

good fortune and no blame
