Song of the Frontier （Ⅵ）
The bow you carry should be strong;
The arrows you use should be long.
Shoot before a horseman his horse;
Capture the chief to beat his force,
Slaughter shan’t go beyond its sphere;
Each State should guard its own frontier.
If an invasion is repelled,
Why shed more blood unless compelled?
The poet speaks of the art of war and his love of peace.
