tieing the Zongzi 粽子 with one hand

Zongzi 粽子
Qu Yuan

Huai Sha, Embracing Sand
Man at his birth receives his fate,
And by it each life must be disposed.
I will calm my heart and pluck my will;
What more have I to fear?
I know that death cannot be refused;
May I love life no longer!
This I proclaim to all worthy men;
I will be an example for you!.
