周頌‧臣工之什‧振鷺 Sacrificial odes of Zhou - Decade Of Chen Gong - Zhen Lu

毛詩:「《》,之後。」



西
在此庶幾夙夜

A flock of egrets is flying,
About the marsh there in the west.
My visitors came,
With an [elegant] carriage like those birds.
There, [in their States], not disliked;
Here, [in Zhou], never tired of; -
They are sure, day and night,
To perpetuate their fame.
