Shijing I. 4. (47)

The husband's to their old age,
In her headdress, and the cross-pins, with their six jewels ;
Easy and elegant in her movements ;
[Stately] as a mountain, [majestic]as a river,
Well beseeming her pictured robes : –
[But] with your want of virtue, O lady,
What have you to do with these things ?

How rich and splendid
Is her pleasant-figured robe !
Her black hair in masses like clouds,
No false locks does she descend to.
There are her ear-plugs of jade,
Her comb-pin of ivory,
And her high forehead, so white.
She appears like a visitant from heaven !
She appears like a goddess !

How rich and splendid
Is her robe of state !
It is worn over the finest muslin of dolichos,
The more cumbrous and warm garment being removed.
Clear are her eyes ; fine is her forehead ;
Full are her temples.
Ah ! such a woman as this !
The beauty of the country !
