The Book of Songs 《詩經》

小雅‧鴻鴈之什‧鶴鳴 Minor odes of the kingdom - Hong Yan Zhi Shen - He Ming

毛詩:「《》,宣王。」



聲聞潛在在于
可以

The crane cries in the ninth pool of the marsh,
And her voice is heard in the [distant] wilds.
The fish lies in the deep,
And now is by the islet.
Pleasant is that garden,
In which are the sandal trees;
But beneath them are only withered leaves.
The stones of those hills,
May be made into grind-stones.

聲聞在于潛在
可以

The crane cries in the ninth pool of the marsh,
And her voice is heard in the sky.
The fish is by the islet,
And now it lies hid in the deep.
Pleasant is that garden,
In which are the sandal trees;
But beneath them is the paper-mulberry tree,
The stones of those hills,
May be used to polish gems.
