The Lion turns South

I just stumbled across the following, while checking the revised CDLI (now the Oracc project) and thought it fitting for today.

It may be hot as hell now, but the tide has turned, the Sun begins its retreat and the longer nights will bring cooler days.

Sometimes I confuse myself, other times Im not at home or do not have my notes handy..

The month of Shu is actually August, so now the Lion waves his tail in our face, hot when its close, cooler when its not, soon tobe resting in the autumn shade..
