《駟驖 - Si Tie》

English translation: James Legge [?] Library Resources
1 駟驖:
Si Tie:
His four iron-black horses are in very fine condition;
The six reins are in the hand [of the charioteer].
The ruler's favourites,
Follow him to the chase.

2 駟驖:
Si Tie:
The male animals of the season are made to present themselves,
The males in season, of very large size.
The ruler says, ' To the left of them; '
Then he lets go his arrows and hits.

3 駟驖:
Si Tie:
He rambles in the northern park;
His four horses display their training.
Light carriages, with bells at the horses' bits,
Convey the long and short-mouthed dogs.
