Line 1 comment: Return to your own Way. How can this be wrong?

Line 2 comment: Pulled to return. Fortune.

Line 3 comment: Carriage spokes halted. Husband and wife quarrel.

Line 4 comment: Have confidence. Bloodletting is past, alarm has gone. No fault.

Line 5 comment: Have confidence. Entwine with your neighbor for wealth.

Line 6 comment: Rain is done, all is in place. Respect and virtue are full. Yet a woman's chastity is imperiled. When the moon is nearly full, the prince attacks: misfortune.

The image Wind moving high in heaven: smallness tames. The noble one acts with restraint, culture, and morals.
