诗经·卫风·淇奥
The Legend of Fei

看《有翡》,
读《诗经》。

Priest 的众小说从未从头读至尾,额不喜欢他的风格,但网上好评如潮。

《衛風.淇奧》
瞻彼淇奧,綠竹猗猗。
有匪君子,如切如磋,如琢如磨。
瑟兮僩兮,赫兮咺兮。
有匪君子,終不可諼兮!

瞻彼淇奧,綠竹青青。
有匪君子,充耳琇瑩,會弁如星。
瑟兮僩兮,赫兮咺兮。
有匪君子,終不可諼兮!

瞻彼淇奧,綠竹如簀。
有匪君子,如金如錫,如圭如璧。
寬兮綽兮,猗重較兮。
善戲謔兮,不為虐兮!

白话文:

淇水之湄

看那淇水之湄, 綠竹依依,
有位文采斐然的男子工作努力,
有如大匠雕骨器時的用心,琢玉石時的仔細,
那樣悠閑,那樣雅致,那樣磊落,那樣威儀,
如此風流瀟灑的男人,我永也不忘記。

看那淇水之濱,一片青青竹林。
有位文采斐然的男子衣飾華麗,
帽上寶石閃閃,精細明亮的垂耳,
那樣悠閑,那樣雅致,那樣磊落,那樣威儀,
如此風流瀟灑的男人,我永也不忘記。

看那淇水之灣,一片竹林漫漫,
有位文質彬彬的男人,是金是銀,
那麼宏偉,那麼閑逸,斜倚著他車廂上的扶手,
談吐風趣,溫文有禮。

The Bank of the River Qi

Translated by Fu-Shiang Chia

Behold the bank of the River Qi. 
The undulant bamboo forest dances. 
A handsome man, intently working, 
As a great master sculpting a piece of jade, 
As a great artist carving a piece of ivory. 
Relaxed, confident, dignified and stately…
Such an elegant man! How can I ever forget him?

Observe the shore of the River Qi 
Against the green bamboo blanket. 
A handsome man, elegantly dressed. 
The adornments of his ears glitter; 
The gems on his cap burnish the light. 
Relaxed, confident, dignified and stately…
Such an elegant man! How can I ever forget him?

Consider the edge of the River Qi.
The bamboo forest, luxuriant.
There he stands, a handsome man,
Pure as gold,
Precious as diamonds.
Leaning on the rails of his chariot,
He speaks with wit, always without condescension.

700 B.C. Iranian sculpture

An Iron Age mystery deepens: It has been nearly a century since exquisite bronze figures emerged from the Zagros Mountains of present-day western Iran. Farmers dug up the artworks of people and animals, embossed bronze cups, and delicate pins dating back 3,000 years. But who created them? There’s still no definitive answer, but Nat Geo’s Historymagazine covers the archaeological detective story—and the possible sculptors. (Pictured above, dating from about 700 B.C., a sculpture of a horned figure taming mythical beasts.) @NatGeo
