Of salad bread delicious food palatable drinks
Needle work and weaving making puppet dance
Playing on lute and drum making solving riddles
Capping verses reciting poems verse uttering statements
Reciting books enacting short plays writing anecdotes
Solving enigmatic verses making a bow spinning with spindle

Tinging jewels with various colors mineralogy herbal medicines

Playing dice playing children toys enforcing mystic power
Gaining victory awakening with music at dawn.
O my dear, see and watch and have a life of your own.
