《蝃蝀 - Di Dong》

English translation: James Legge [?] Library Resources
1 蝃蝀:
蝃蝀在东、莫之敢指。
女子有行、远父母兄弟。
Di Dong:
There is a rainbow in the east,
And no one dares to point to it.
When a girl goes away [from her home],
She separates from her parents and brothers.

2 蝃蝀:
朝跻于西、崇朝其雨。
女子有行、远兄弟父母。
Di Dong:
In the morning [a rainbow] rises in the west,
And [only] during the morning is there rain.
When a girl goes away [from her home],
She separates from her brothers and parents.

3 蝃蝀:
乃如之人也、怀昏姻也。
大无信也、不知命也。
Di Dong:
This person
Has her heart only on being married.
Greatly is she untrue to herself,
And does not recognize [the law of] her lot.
