毛詩:「《》,文公文公贈送文公不見我見及其即位。」



何以乘黃

I escorted my mother's nephew,
To the north of the Wei,
What did I present to him?
Four bay horses for his carriage of state.

悠悠何以

I escorted my mother's nephew,
Long, long did I think of him.
What did I present to him?
A precious jasper, and gems for his girdle-pendant.
