The Winter Solstice

by horngyih

阴极之至,阳气始生,日南至,日短之至,日影长之至,故曰“冬至”

When darkness is at its Extreme,
The light begins its return.
When the sun has reach it’s southern Extreme,
The day is the shortest.
Where shadows cast, are its longest in extreme…
So it is named, the Winter Extreme
( Chinese saying for the name “Dong Zhi”, Dong meaning Winter, Zhi meaning Extreme – what the chinese call the Winter Solstice. )
