Old Miao songs about marriage. 6.
Song about serving breakfast.

Collected by Wang Ming-ji.


In this song all had gone well with the marriage, and the bridal party was about to return home. The "bridegroom’s gown", presented by the bride to her husband, had brought credit to both families, and, though the matter is not mentioned, presumably no fault was found with the cattle of the marriage settlement. Now on the morning of their departure, led by the bridegroom himself, the family pressed gifts of food and wine upon their guests, and offered lavish provision for the journey home
