Pàgina xxx - When a son is born Let him sleep on the bed, Clothe him with fine clothes, And give him jade to play with. How lordly his cry is! May he grow up to wear crimson And be the lord of the clan and the tribe.
Pàgina xxx - And give him jade to play with. How lordly his cry is! May he grow up to wear crimson And be the lord of the clan and the tribe. When a daughter is born, Let her sleep on the ground, Wrap her in common wrappings, And give her broken tiles for playthings. May she have no faults, no merits of her own May she well attend to food and wine, And bring no discredit to her parents.
