The Book of Poetry, tr. by James Legge, [1876], at


The Lu Ling; narrative. The admiration in Ch‘i of hounds and hunters.

1Ling-ling go the hounds; ling-ling the hounds go.
Their master is kindly and good, as we know. p. 112

2With double rings furnished, on go the hounds;
In goodness and grace their master abounds.

3Three rings at their necks, they rush to the chase;
Their master is famous for power and for grace.
