How wonderful is T’ai Chi Ch’uan,
Whose movements follow nature!
Continuous like a jade bracelet,
Every movement expresses the T’ai Chi symbol.
The whole body is filled with one unbroken c’hi.
Above and below are without imbalance.
Place the feet with cat steps,
Moving the ch’i like coiling silk.
In movement, everything moves;
In stillness, all is still.
