上山采蘼芜 The Old Wife and the New

Author: -- 无名氏 Anoymous
上山采蘼芜,
She went uphill to pluck herbs wild;
下山逢故夫。
Downhill, she met her former husband mild.
长跪问故夫,
She knelt and asked, "How do you...
新人复何如?
How do you find your young wife new?"
新人虽完好,
"Though my new wife is good and fair,
未若故人姝。
She cannot yet with you compare.
颜色类相似,
In looks by your side she may stand,
手爪不相如。
But she,s less clever with her hand.
新人从门入,
When she came in from the front door,
故人从閤去。
You left your room on second floor.
新人工织缣,
She's good at embroidering skein,
故人工织素。
While you are good at sewing plain.
织缣日一匹,
She weaves one foot of silk a day;
织素五丈余。
You weave five feet without delay.
将缣来比素,
Her works compared with yours, all told,
新人不如故。
The new is not up to the old."
