There is the lady in the carriage [with him],
With the countenance like the flower of the ephermeral hedge-tree.
As they move about,
The beautiful Ju-gems of her girdle-pendant appear.
That beautiful eldest Jiang,
Is truly admirable and elegant.

There is the young lady walking [with him],
With a countenance like the ephermeral blossoms of the hedge-tree.
As they move about,
The gems of her girdle-pendant tinkle.
Of that beautiful eldest Jiang,
The virtuous fame is not to be forgotten.

Legge 83

La fille monte au même char,
belle comme fleur de cirier !...
Flottant au vent, flottant au vent,
ses breloques sont de beaux jades !
La voici, la belle Mong Kiang,
belle vraiment et comme il faut !

La fille suit la même route,
belle comme fleur de cirier !...
Flottant au vent, flottant au vent,
ses breloques font un cliquetis !
La voici, la belle Mong Kiang !
son prestige vaincra l'oubli !

Granet XXXVI.
