Chinese poem illustration: 小雅 都人士/ Xiaoya – Gentleman of Zhou City by Anonymous

小雅 都人士

Ful video also available at Bilibili: 小雅 都人士

A poem with many arguements with its interpretation.

A new arguemnet is raised in this video by asking the Three Questions of philosophy:
-Who are you
-Where are you from
-Where are you about going

I concluded that this poem is about a marriage by the sad father-in-law. You could try your part to dig into this poem with many backgrounds given in the video.

小雅 都人士
佚名

彼都人士,狐裘黄黄。
其容不改,出言有章。
行归于周,万民所望。

彼都人士,台笠缁撮。
彼君子女,绸直如发。
我不见兮,我心不说。

彼都人士,充耳琇实。
彼君子女,谓之尹吉。
我不见兮,我心苑结

彼都人士,垂带而厉。
彼君子女,卷发如虿。
我不见兮,言从之迈。

匪伊垂之,带则有余。
匪伊卷之,发则有旟。
我不见兮,云何盱矣。
