Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Here's Steven Mitchell's for contrast.

The Tao gives birth to One.
One gives birth to Two.
Two gives birth to Three.
Three gives birth to all things.

All things have their backs to the female
and stand facing the male.
When male and femal combine
all things achieve harmony.

Ordinary men hate solitude.
But the Master makes use of it.
embracing his aloneness,realizing
he is one with the whole universe.

Hey, Grandma Moses started late!
