《東門之枌 - Dong Men Zhi Fen》

English translation: James Legge [?] Library Resources
1 東門之枌:
Dong Men Zhi Fen:
[There are] the white elms at the east gate.
And the oaks on Wanqiu;
The daughter of Zizhong,
Dances about under them.

2 東門之枌:
Dong Men Zhi Fen:
A good morning having been chosen,
For the plain in the South,
She leaves twisting her hemp,
And dances to it through the market-place.

3 東門之枌:
Dong Men Zhi Fen:
The morning being good for excursion,
They all proceed together.
'I look on you as the flower of the thorny mallows;
You give me a stalk of the pepper plant.
