毛詩:「《》,夫人貴賤。」



三五夙夜不同

Small are those starlets,
Three or five of them in the east,
Swiftly by night we go;
In the early dawn we are with the prince.
Our lot is not like hers.

參與

Small are those starlets,
And there are Orion and the Pleiades.
Swiftly by night we go,
Carrying our coverlets and sheets.
Our lot is not like hers.
