connects the "winter solstice" with the "spring equinox", emphasizing the natural law of "Zhi" and "Fen". The sentence is: Winter Solstice; Vernal equinox.

Nine words, nine strokes per word (of which "Feng" is in traditional Chinese). Each stroke takes one day. After completing one word, you will go to "19". After completing nine words, the "99" will be completed in 81 days.

and

inspired by this, the "nine nine cold elimination couplet" appeared, which is combined with a nine character sentence with nine strokes per word, such as: swallowing in the flowing spring behind the house; The weeping willows in front of the court cherish the spring breeze. In the couplet of
