毛詩:「《》,宣公國人。」



中心

The two youths got into their boats,
Whose shadows floated about [on the water].
I think longingly of them,
And my heart is tossed about in uncertainty.

有害

The two youths got into their boats,
Which floated away [on the stream].
I think longingly of them,
Did they not come to harm?

》,四句
