Wife and husband shall do the harmless deeds with unity!


O’ woman who has a bright face! resembling the full moon
said to have eight into two (sixteen) arts altogether into one!
As if the two eyes see the object as one, the loving
wife and husband without any difference of opinion
shall do the harmless deeds with unity!
