Shijing III. 1. (239)

Look at the foot of the Han,
How abundantly grow the hazel and the arrow-thorn !
Easy and self-possessed was our prince,
In his pursuit of dignity [still] easy and self-possessed !

Massive is that libation-cup of jade,
With the yellow liquid [sparkling] in it.
Easy and self-possessed was our prince,
The fit recipient of blessing and dignity.

The hawk flies up to heaven ;
The fishes leap in the deep.
Easy and self-possessed was our-prince ; –
Did he not exert an influence upon men ?

His clear spirits are in vessel ;
His red bull is ready ; –
To offer, to sacrifice,
To increase his bright happiness.

Thick grow the oaks and the yu,
Which the people use for fuel.
Easy and self-possessed was our prince,
Cheered and encouraged by the Spirits.

Luxuriant are the dolichos and other creepers,
Clinging to the branches and stems,
Easy and self-possessed was our prince,
Seeking for happiness by no crooked ways.

Legge 239
