A simple-looking lad you were,
貿Carrying cloth to exchange it for silk.
貿[But] you came not so to purchase silk; -
You came to make proposals to me.
I convoyed you through the Qi,
As far as Dunqiu.
' It is not I, ' [I said], ' who would protract the time;
But you have had no good go-between.
I pray you be not angry,
And let autumn be the time. '
