毛詩:「《》,男女國有男女所以育人。」





There is a fox, solitary and suspicious,
At that dam over the Qi.
My heart is sad; -
That man has no lower garment.



There is a fox, solitary and suspicious,
At that deep ford of the Qi.
My heart is sad; -
That man has no girdle.



There is a fox, solitary and suspicious,
By the side there of the Qi.
My heart is sad; -
That man has no clothes.
