I take counsel at the beginning of my [rule], How I can follow [the example] of my shrined father. Ah! far-reaching [were his plans], And I am not yet able to carry them out. However I endeavour to reach to them, My continuation of them will still be all-deflected. I am [but as] a little child, Unequal to the many difficulties of the State. In his room, [I will look for him] to go up and come down in the court, To ascend and descend in the house. Admirable art thou, O great Father, [Condescend] to preserve and enlighten me.
