毛詩:「《》,君子育人天下喜樂。」



君子

Luxuriantly grows the aster-southernwood,
In the midst of that large mound.
Since we see our noble lord,
We rejoice, and he shows us all courtesy.

君子

Luxuriantly grows the aster-southernwood,
In the midst of that islet.
Since we see our noble lord,
Our hearts are full of joy.

君子

Luxuriantly grows the aster-southernwood,
In the midst of that great height.
We see our noble lord,
And he gives us a hundred sets of cowries.

君子

It floats about, - the willow boat,
Now sinking, now rising again.
Since we see our noble lord,
Our hearts are at rest.

》,四句
