Shijing I. 8. (99)

The sun is in the east,
And that lovely girl,
Is in my chamber.
She is in my chamber ;
She treads in my footsteps, and comes to me.

The moon is in the east,
And that lovely girl,
Is inside my door.
She is inside my door ;
She treads in my footsteps, and hastens away.

Legge 99

Soleil à l'orient !
C'est une belle fille
qui est ans ma maison....
Elle est dans ma maison !
à ma suite elle y vient !

Lune vers l'Orient !
C'est une belle fille
qui est près de ma porte !...
Elle est près de ma porte !
à ma suite elle en sort !

Granet XLI.
