毛詩:「《》,不能。」



勞心

If I could but see the white cap,
And the earnest mourner worn to leanness! -
My toiled heart is worn with grief!

傷悲

f I could but see the white [lower] dress! -
My heart is wounded with sadness!
I should be inclined to go and live with the wearer!

蘊結

If I could but see the white knee-covers! -
Sorrow is knotted in my heart!
I should almost feel as of one soul with the wearer!

》,三句
