Conspiciously rise the staffs with their ox-tails,
In the distant suburbs of Jun,
Ornamented with the white silk bands ;
There are four carriages with their good horses,
That admirable gentleman, –
What will he give them for [this] ?

Conspiciously rise the staffs with their falcon-banners,
In the nearer suburbs of Jun,
Ornamented with the white silk ribbons ;
There are four carriages with their good horses,
That admirable gentleman, –
What will he give them for [this] ?

Conspiciously rise the staffs with their feathered streamers,
At the walls of Jun,
Bound with the white silk cords ;
There are six carriages with their good horses,
That admirable gentleman, –
What will he give them for [this] ?
