People like to use dew to show the depth of autumn. Shortly after autumn, the dew on the grass leaves is crystal clear and lovable. "Jade steps give birth to White Dew and invade stockings for a long time at night." At that time, the autumn, called "Bailu", is full of young people's poetic lingering. Autumn is getting stronger and colder. When you enter the "cold dew", the dew is cold. At this time of autumn, in the eyes of Luo Tuo's poets, it is like a man in middle age: "in his prime, listening to the rain, the river is broad and the clouds are low, and the wild geese are called the west wind." Another half month later, it will be "frost". "Jianjia green, White Dew for frost", the earth is like the old man's temples, a mottled white - Autumn dew, has vividly summarized a person's life. Even Cao Cao expressed such sentiments: "when singing to wine, life is geometric. For example, the morning dew is more painful to go to. "
The paths among the trees are also covered with fallen leaves, making every step like whispering with the earth. At this moment, you will feel that you are truly integrated with nature. You are a tree growing out of the soil. Through wind and rain, weather. "The moon is falling, the crow is crowing, the frost is all over the sky, and the fishing fire of Jiangfeng sleeps in sorrow." Such autumn color makes people's hearts involuntarily produce many helplessness and sadness. Sensitive to the season of small insects and animals, but also in a hurry to their own small nest to carry food. They don't want to fight with the cold. They just want to block up the hole and sleep lazily. When I wake up, it's a beautiful spring. But some creatures don't think so. The day of frost is the time to kill.
If you are willing to walk deeper into the woods on the day of frost, you may see such a strange and cruel scene. "ZhouShu" said: "the day of frost jackal sacrifice animals. In a flat space between the trees, the jackal is putting the wild animals he has caught, one by one, neatly in a square, and then howling at the sky. At this time, you must not disturb it. It's sacrificing. He prayed that the mountain god would tolerate his killing of the weaker animals.
In the early morning of the frost, after the sound of the cannon, the soldiers, one by one, with their shining armor and distinctive flags, crossed the street and went straight to the martial arts hall. Sacrifice to the God of flag and standard first. The sacrifice is the whole pig, the whole sheep, very rich. At the time of sacrifice, the chief mourner should read out the blessing text and pray for the flag God to guide the soldiers to march forward bravely and win the victory. After reading out the message, salute the army, and then parade.
In addition to the unpredictable array, the military parade can also see thrilling equestrian performances. The riders galloped back and forth, making all kinds of amazing patterns on the horseback. There are "double yanchuoshui", "withered pine hanging upside down"; there are "Kuixing kicking", "night fork exploring the sea"; there are "collapsing bridge into walking", "stepping on ladder to watch the moon"... Most of the ancients chose to crusade against the enemy in autumn. The military parade was often the drill before the war. When it was over, they went straight to the battlefield.
