His lambs's fur is glossy,
Truly smooth and beautiful.
That officer,
Rests in his lot and will not change.

His lambs's fur, with its cuffs of leopard-skin.
Looks grandly martial and strong.
That officer,
In the country will ever hold to the right.

How splendid is his lamb's fur !
How bright are its three ornaments !
That officer,
Is the ornament of the country.

Legge 80
