Green is the upper robe,
Green with a yellow lining !
The sorrow of my heart, –
How can it cease ?

Green is the upper robe,
Green the upper, and yellow the lower garment !
The sorrow of my heart, –
How can it be forgotten ?

[Dyed] green has been the silk ; –
It was you who did it.
[But] I think of the ancients,
That I may be kept from doing wrong.

Linen, fine or coarse,
Is cold when worn in the wind.
I think of the ancients,
And find what is in my heart.

Legge 27
