郑风 清扬婉兮

A popular love poem featured with unique wording for beauty like 清扬婉兮, 有美一人, 邂逅相遇 which is still widely used today. An new interpretation is raised per looking into the words 蔓, 美, 一人, 邂逅, which very likely have a different meaning in the time of Zhou dynasty, thus the poem should be interpretated in a totally different way.

The very few seen two paragraphs structure also implys this poem might be negative and alternative.

佚名

野有蔓草,零露漙兮。
有美一人,清扬婉兮。
邂逅相遇,适我愿兮。

野有蔓草,零露瀼瀼。
有美一人,婉如清扬。
邂逅相遇,与子偕臧。
