The book of odes and hymns – part 55

QI AO

Look at those recesses in the banks of the Qi,

With their green bamboos, so fresh and luxuriant!

There is our elegant and accomplished prince,

As from the knife and the file,

As from the chisel and the polisher!

How grave is he and dignified!

How commanding and distinguished!

Our elegant and accomplished prince,

Never can he be forgotten!

Look at those recesses in the banks of the Qi,

With their green bamboos, so strong and luxuriant!

There is our elegant and accomplished prince, 

With his ear-stoppers of beautiful pebbles,

And his cap, glittering as with stars between the seams!

How grave is he and dignified!

How commanding and distinguished!

Our elegant and accomplished prince,

Never can he be forgotten!

Look at those recesses in the banks of the Qi,

With their green bamboos, so dense together!

There is our elegant and accomplished prince,

[Pure] as gold and as tin,

[Soft and rich] as a sceptre of jade!

How magnanimous is he and gentle!

There he is in his chariot with its two high sides!

Skilful is he at quips and jokes,

But how does he keep from rudeness from them!

善戲謔兮、不為虐兮。
