    Introduction

    Coming down to the time of Yao, the ten suns [once] came out together. They scorched the standing grain and the sheaves and killed herbs and trees, so that the people had nothing to eat. [Moreover], Chayu 猰貐, Nine Gullet九嬰, Typhoon, Mound Pig, Chisel Tusk, and Long Snake all were causing the peopleharm.Yao 堯 therefore commanded Yi [the Archer] to slaughter Chisel Tusk 鑿齒 in the water meadows of Chouhua 疇華, to kill Nine Gullet on the banks of the Xiong River凶水, to shoot down Typhoon in the wilds of Greenhill 青丘,upward to shoot the ten suns and downward to kill Chayu, to chop Long Snake in two at Dongting Lake 洞庭, and to capture Mound Pig 封豨,in Mulberry Forest. The multitudes of people all were happy and established Yao as Son of Heaven. In the piece, the lyrics include Hani numerals 1-10 and sun, and others are foil.
