毛詩:「《》,莊公不能先公使賢者退。」





He has reared his hut by the stream in the valley,
- That large man, so much at his ease.
Alone he sleeps, and wakes, and talks.
He swears he will never forgets [his true joy].



He has reared his hut in the bend of the mound,
- That large man, with such an air of indifference.
Alone he sleeps, and wakes, and sings.
He swears he will never pass from the spot.

宿

He has reared his hut on the level height,
- That large man, so self-collected.
Alone, he sleeps and wakes, and sleeps again.
He swears he will never tell [of his delight].
