毛詩:「《》[1],幽王。」



憂心君子

His bells ring out jiang-jiang,
While the waters of the Huai go sweeping on;
Sad is my heart and wouded.
The virtuous sovereigns [of old], -
In my heart, indeed, I cannot forget them.

憂心君子

His drums ring out jie-jie,
While the waters of the Huai rush along;
My heart is sad and grieved.
Of the virtuous sovereigns [of old],
The virtue was without flaw.

憂心君子

His bells ring out, his large drums resound,
There are the three islands in the Huai;
Sad is my heart and moved.
Of the virtuous sovereigns [of old],
The virtue was different from this.

同音以南

His bells ring out qin-qin;
His lutes, large and small, give their notes;
The tones of his organs and sounding stones are in unison.
They sing the Ya and the Nan,
Dancing to their flutes without error.
