《葛屨 - Ge Ju》

English translation: James Legge [?]
Books referencing 《葛屨》 Library Resources
1 葛屨:
Ge Ju:
Shoes thinly woven of the dolichos fibre,
May be used to walk on the hoarfrost.
The delicate fingers of a bride,
May be used in making clothes.
[His bride] puts the waistband to his lower garment and the collar to his upper,
And he, a wealthy man, wears them.

2 葛屨:
Ge Ju:
Wealthy, he moves about quite at ease,
And politely he stands aside to the left.
From his girdle hangs his ivory comb-pin.
It is the narrowness of his disposition,
Which makes him a subject for satire.
