On the mound where is the hemp,
Some one is detaining Zijie.
Some one is there detaining Zijie ; –
Would that he would come jauntily [to me] !

On the mound where is the wheat,
Some one is detaining Ziguo.
Some one is there detaining Ziguo ; –
Would that he would come and eat with me !

On the mound where are the plum trees,
Some one is detaining those youths.
Some one is there detaining those youths ; –
They will give me Jiu-stones for my girdle.

Legge 74

Sur le tertre il y a du chanvre,
et c'est là que reste Tseu Tsie !
Et c'est là que reste Tseu Tsie !
puisse-t-il s'en venir joyeux !

Sur le tertre il y a du blé,
et c'est là que reste Tseu Kouo !
Et c'est là que reste Tseu Kouo !
puisse-t-il s'en venir manger !

Sur le tertre sont des pruniers,
c'est là que reste ce seigneur !
C'est là que reste ce seigneur !
il me fait cadeau de breloques !

Granet XXVII.
