毛詩:「《》,國人大國。」



他人

If you, Sir, think kindly of me,
I will hold up my lower garments, and cross the Zhen.
If you do not think of me,
Is there no other person [to do so]?
You, foolish, foolish fellow!



If you, Sir, think kindly of me,

Is there no other gentleman [to do so]?
You, foolish, foolish fellow!
