Books referencing 《女曰雞鳴》 Library Resources
1 女曰雞鳴:
女曰雞鳴、士曰昧旦。
子興視夜、明星有爛。
將翱將翔、弋鳧與鴈。
Nu Yue Ji Ming:
Says the wife, ' It is cock-crow; '
Says the husband, ' It is grey dawn. '
' Rise, Sir, and look at the night, - '
If the morning star be not shining.
Bestir yourself, and move about,
To shoot the wild ducks and geese.

2 女曰雞鳴:
弋言加之、與子宜之。
宜言飲酒、與子偕老。
琴瑟在御、莫不靜好。
Nu Yue Ji Ming:
When your arrows and line have found them,
I will dress them fitly for you.
When they are dressed, we will drink [together over them],
And I will hope to grow old with you.
Your lute in your hands,
Will emits its quiet pleasant tones.

3 女曰雞鳴:
知子之來之、雜佩以贈之。
知子之順之、雜佩以問之。
知子之好之、雜佩以報之。
Nu Yue Ji Ming:
When I know those whose acquaintance you wish,
I will give them of the ornaments of my girdle.
When I know those with whom you are cordial,
I will send to them of the ornaments of my girdle.
When I know those whom you love,
I will repay their friendship from the ornaments of my girdle.
