If you, Sir, think kindly of me,
I will hold up my lower garments, and cross the Zhen.
If you do not think of me,
Is there no other person [to do so] ?
You, foolish, foolish fellow !

If you, Sir, think kindly of me,
I will hold up my lower garments, and cross the Wei.
If you do not think of me,
Is there no other gentleman [to do so] ?
You, foolish, foolish fellow !

Legge 87

Si tu as pour moi des pensées d'amour,
je trousse ma jupe et passe la Tchen !
Mais si tu n'as point de pensées pour moi,
est-ce qu'il n'y a pas d'autres hommes ?
Ô le plus fou des jeunes fous, vraiment !

Si tu as pour moi des pensées d'amour,
je trousse ma jupe et passe la Wei !
Mais si tu n'as point de pensées pour moi,
Est-ce qu'il n'y a pas d'autres garçons ?
Ô le plus fou des jeunes fous, vraiment !
