Luxuriantly grows the aster-southernwood,
In the midst of that large mound.
Since we see our noble lord,
We rejoice, and he shows us all courtesy.

Luxuriantly grows the aster-southernwood,
In the midst of that islet.
Since we see our noble lord,
Our hearts are full of joy.

Luxuriantly grows the aster-southernwood,
In the midst of that great height.
We see our noble lord,
And he gives us a hundred sets of cowries.

It floats about, – the willow boat,
Now sinking, now rising again.
Since we see our noble lord,
Our hearts are at rest.

Legge 176

Ô la belle, la belle armoise,
qui est au milieu du coteau !
Sitôt que je vois mon seigneur,
quelle joie donc et quel respect !

Ô la belle, la belle armoise,
qui est au milieu de l'îlot !
Sitôt que je vois mon seigneur,
mon cœur alors a la gaîté !

Ô la belle, la belle armoise,
qui est au milieu de la berge !
Sitôt que je vois mon seigneur,
il me donne cent coquillages !

La barque en peuplier vogue ! vogue !
plongeant tantôt, flottant tantôt !
Sitôt que je vois mon seigneur,
mon cœur alors a le repos !

Granet LIII.
