毛詩:「《》,婚姻。」





Full and good looking was the gentleman,
Who waited for me in the lane!
I repent that I did not go with him.



A splendid gentleman was he,
Who waited for me in the hall!
I regret that I did not accompany him.



Over my embroidered upper robe, I have put on a [plain] single garment;
Over my embroidered lower robe, I have done the same.
O Sir, O Sir,
Have your carriage ready for me to go with you.



Over my embroidered lower robe, I have put on a [plain] single garment;
Over my embroidered upper robe, I have done the same.
O Sir, O Sir,
Have your carriage ready to take me home with you.
