How lovely is the retiring girl!
She was to await me at a corner of the wall.
Loving and not seeing her,
I scratch my head, and am in perplexity.
How handsome is the retiring girl!
She presented to me a red tube.
Bright is the red tube; --
I delight in the beauty of the girl.
From the pasture lands she gave a shoet of the white grass,
Truly elegant and rare.
It is not you, O grass, that are elegant; --
You are the gift of an elegant girl.
