毛詩:「《》,學校亂世學校。」



悠悠

O you, with the blue collar,
Prolonged is the anxiety of my heart.
Although I do not go [to you],
Why do you not continue your messages [to me]?

悠悠

O you with the blue [strings to your] girdle-gems,
Long, long do I think of you.
Although I do not go [to you],
Why do you not come [to me]?

一日不見三月

How volatile are you and dissipated,
By the look-out tower on the wall!
One day without the sight of you,
Is like three months.
