73 Catching the turtle
Leisure on rivers and lakes
Fishing below the mist-covered water.
Your catch includes the giant turtle,
Songs and laughter in the middle of the current.
悠悠 remote or leisurely
74 Two sides
Wanting to help but not helping,
Instead of desiring imposing it.
The heart is not certain,
One vehicle two ends.
75 Choice and dedication
A good idea - consider it well
Falling backward - keep going
A small path or the big Way
Your heart at peace.
76 The right mindset
Difficult difficult difficult,
Suddenly from a level earth big waves rise up,
Easy easy easy,
Talking and laughing usually ends promising.
77 Song of the wind
When the heart has plenty,
But the strength is not sufficient,
Then rely on the spring breeze,
A song, a melody.
春風 spring breeze: happy smiles, pleasant atmosphere.
This poem mentions the strategy of Zhuge Liang in a battle
78 Relaxing exercise
When the body is restless,
And the heart uneasy,
Move and pause both three times,
At the end of the day things will surely be happy.
79 Shadows on immortality
Affairs settled but in their core not yet,
People satisfied but in their core not yet,
You want to know what really to believe,
The sun casts shadows on the Láng.
琅 Láng: Jade-like stone; clean and white; lithophone. A legendary treasure tree with fruit granting immortality. Information here
The tree turns to the yang which spring emits
Triple yin however hides in its roots
The woodcutter doesn't know
He chops firewood.
81 No mirror
Nothing worth saying.
82 A big future
Carriages and horses arrive,
Banners and flags in abundance and a bright moon,
Offer amnesty and enlistment to rebels
and deal militarily with traitors,
A never-ending big future.
83 Soaring up
Where shall I stay overnight
Where shall I stay overnight;
East of the sea and North of the river famous names will be recorded,
One paragraph will be about a glorious spirit
Soaring up to heaven.
84 Possession needs protection.
A golden scale came into your possession,
Now you have to prevent losing it.
It seems the theory of how to deal with it,
Is to talk cautiously or hold your tongue.
85 Peace in a glass
Empty a glass,
Relax your brows,
Heaven and Earth are in accord,
On account of good thoughts.
The wild demon stretches his bow to shoot the master,
In the dark the arrow startles the demons,
Suddenly a red sun sinks into the river,
The disaster reveals dark things in the air.
87 Flying dragon
Overnight the lucky star shines auspiciously,
The days of blue sky are approaching
A genuine flying dragon appears in heaven
And descends to the bright hall
福星 The lucky star: Jupiter.
青天 Blue sky, clean and upright official.
龍飛 Flying dragon; ascend the throne.
88 No catch
In solitude fishing in a cold pool,
Halfway great waves rise,
The water is cold and the fish don't bite,
The empty sky carries the still bright moon.
89 Engaging others
You are on your own,
And there is hard mental and physical effort.
There are powerful people close by,
It is right to borrow their strength.
借方 Borrow strength, ask or accept help.
90 Nature helps your journey
The clouds dissolve around the moon in the center,
The brillance spreads everywhere,
The journey comes upon water flowing in your direction,
Thousands of miles you go fast like the wind..
快如風 Fast like the wind: the road runs smoothly.
91 Capturing the bad
Swords and halberts line up in the mountain forest,
Bandits must be coming,
They flee after defeat, capture and collect them,
You will be made feudal lord,
Which will be passed on to your children and grandchildren.
蔭 yìn: confer privileges on sb.'s descendants in consideration of distinguished service.

92 When the snake sleeps
The shore is far, the water deep
The boat can easily sink,
The road is long, the mountains difficult to walk.
In the season of shéān you can get through and across in a day,
The moon high in heaven is especially bright.
蛇安 Shéān, snake quiet: when the snakes hibernate, which is around the time of the Double 9th festival.
You plan to change but cannot change,
Your happiness is prevented because you have to deal with an offensive union.
In the future you seem to find a woman who attracts you,
Transformation like a Fish-dragon coming out of the deep abyss.
魚龍 fish-dragon: ichthyosaur. More about fish-dragons
94 A golden scale
One person leaves, one person enters,
A gentle breeze and a bright moon wary of each other,
You aquire a golden scale down at the shore fishing spot.
95 End of ancient securities
Happiness comes but hiding grief,
Already encountering heavy rain and gusts of a gale-force wind.
Ancient wood is regarded as fit for troughs.
Everyone is exhausted, dao is not firm and fast.
96 The orphan of Zhao
You may stay in a place at a faraway destiny,
A small orphan boy may be entrusted to you,
The time of the meeting is approaching,
Don't arrive late!
A gathering in a place not your home,
Everyone is happy, healthy and in harmony.
六尺之孤 some; orphaned boys or girls under 6 years of age.
This poem is about three opera's.
