English translation: James Legge [?]
Books referencing 《都人士》 Library Resources
1 都人士:
彼都人士、狐裘黄黄。
其容不改、出言有章。
行归于周、万民所望。
Du Ren Shi:
Those officers of the [old] capital,
With their fox-furs so yellow,
Their deportment unvaryingly [correct],
And their speech full of elegance! -
If we could go back to [the old] Zhou,
They would be admiringly looked up to by all the people.

2 都人士:
彼都人士、台笠缁撮。
彼君子女、绸直如发
我不见兮、我心不说。
Du Ren Shi:
Those officers of the [old] capital,
With their hats of Tai leaves and small black caps! -
Those ladies of noble Houses.
With their hair so thick and straight! -
I do not see them [now],
And my heart is dissatisfied.

3 都人士:
彼都人士、充耳琇实。
彼君子女、谓之尹吉。
我不见兮、我心苑结。
Du Ren Shi:
Those officers of the [old] capital,
With their ear-plugs of xiu-stones! -
Those ladies of noble Houses,
Each fit to be called a Yin or a Ji! -
I do not see them [now],
And my heart grieves with indissoluble sorrow.

4 都人士:
彼都人士、垂带而厉。
彼君子女、卷发如虿。
我不见兮、言从之迈。
Du Ren Shi:
Those officers of the [old] capital,
With their girdles hanging elegantly down! -
Those ladies of great Houses,
With their [side] hair curving up like a scorpion's tail! -
I do not see them [now],
[If I could], I would walk along after them.

5 都人士:
匪伊垂之、带则有馀。
匪伊卷之、发则有旟。
我不见兮、云何盱矣。
Du Ren Shi:
Not that they purposely let their girdles hang down; -
The girdles were naturally long.
Not that they gave their hair that curve; -
The hair had a natural curl.
I do not see them [now],
And how do I long for them!
