采芑 CAI QI

薄言采芑、于彼新田、于此菑畝。
方叔蒞止、其車三千、師干之試。
方叔率止、乘其四騏、四騏翼翼。
路車有奭、簟笰魚服、鉤膺鞗革。

薄言采芑、于彼新田、于此中鄉。
方叔蒞止、其車三千、旂旐央央。
方叔率止、約軝錯衡、八鸞瑲瑲。
服其命服、朱芾斯皇、有瑲蔥珩。

鴥彼飛隼、其飛戾天、亦集爰止。
方叔蒞止、其車三千、師干之試。
方叔率止、鉦人伐鼓、陳師鞠旅。
顯允方叔、伐鼓淵淵、振旅闐闐。

蠢爾蠻荊、大邦為讎。
方叔元老、克壯其猶。
方叔率止、執訊獲醜。
戎車嘽嘽、嘽嘽焞焞、如霆如雷。
顯允方叔、征伐玁狁、蠻荊來威。

They were gathering the white millet ,
In those new fields ,
And in these acres brought only one year under cultivation ,
When Fang Shu came to take the command .
His chariots were three thousand ,
With a host of well-disciplined warriors .
Fang Shu led them on ,
In his carriage drawn by four piebalds ,
Four piebalds orderly moving .
Red shone his grand carriage ,
With its chequered bamboo screen , and seal-skin quivers ,
With the hooks for the trappings of the breast-bands , and the rein-ends .

They were gathering the white millet ,
In those new fields ,
And all about these villages ,
When Fang Shu came to take the command .
His chariots were three thousand ;
His banners , with their blazonry of dragons , and of serpents and tortoises , f luttered gaily .
Fang Shu led them on ,
The naves of his wheels bound with leather , and his yoke ornamented .
Tinkle-tinkle went the eight bells at the horses' bits .
He wore the robes conferred [by the king] ;
His red knee-covers were resplendent ,
And the gems of his girdle-pendant sounding .

Rapid is the flight of the hawk ,
Soaring to the heavens ,
And again descending and settling in its place .
Fang Shu came to take the command .
His chariots were three thousand ,
With a host of well disciplined warriors .
Fang Shu led them on .
With his jinglers and drummers ,
He marshalled his hosts and addressed them .
Intelligent and true is Fang Shu ,
Deep rolled the sound of his drums ;
With a lighter sound he led the troops back .

Foolish were the savage tribes of King ,
Presuming to oppose our great region .
Fang Shu is of great age ,
But full of vigour were his plans .
He led his army on ,
Seized [the chiefs] for the question , and made captives of a crowd [besides] .< br> Numerous were his war chariots ,
Numerous and in grand array ,
Like the clap or the roll of thunder their onset .
Intelligent and true is Fang Shu .
He had gone and smitten the Xian-yun ,
And the tribes of King came , awed by his majesty .
