毛詩:「《》,宣公君子憂懼。」





On the embankment are magpies' nests;
On the height grows the beautiful pea.
Who has been imposing on the object of my admiration?
- My heart is full of sorrow.

中唐

The middle path of the temple is covered with its tiles;
On the height is the beautiful medallion plant.
Who has been imposing on the object of my admiration?
- My heart is full of trouble.
