to get up early,
to wash your hands in the wind,
to go out and try your luck with the weather
(to reveal your bad fortune).
To return with chrysanthemums in your eyes,
to give birth to a chill of all chills,
to visit the oyster of your pearls
(to reveal utopia to the pearl).
To fall asleep late,
to wake up.
