毛詩:「《》,無禮天下文王亂世無禮。」



白茅

In the wild there is a dead antelope,
And it is wrapped up with the white grass.
There is a young lady with thoughts natural to the spring,
And a fine gentleman would lead her astray.

鹿白茅

In the forest there are the scrubby oaks;
In the wild there is a dead deer,
And it is bound round with the white grass.
There is a young lady like a gem.

脫脫使

[She says], Slowly; gently, gently;
Do not move my handkerchief;
Do not make my dog bark.
