毛詩:「《》,國小禍難。」



中心

Not for the violence of the wind;
Not for a rushing motion of a chariot; -
But when I look to the road to Zhou,
Am I pained to the core of my heart.

中心

Not for the whirlwind;
Not for the irregular motion of a chariot; -
But when I look to the road to Zhou,
Am I sad to the core of my heart.

西

Who can cook fish?
I will wash his boilers for him.
Who will loyally go to the west?
I will cheer him with good words.
