Yiquan Poem 6

Here is Poem 6.

Tranlsated by Professor Chang Shao Quan and Heron Beecham. Reproduced with permission.

The body moves smoothly as though dancing with waves;
With the mind and energy as though walking on water.

A moving dragon plays virtuoso to a white crane;
With a grin on its face like that of a terrifying snake.

Strength and power are stored in the muscles and tendons;
The spirit only appears when the frame is properly formed.

Maybe a moving cloud can swallow the beautiful moon;
Upright chivalry is strong enough to pierce through a rainbow.
