All the morning I gather the king-grass,
And do not collect enough to fill my hands.
My hair is in a wisp; -
I will go home and wash it.
All the morning I gather the indigo plant,
And do not collect enough to fill my apron.
Five days was the time agreed on; -
It is the sixth, and I do not see him.
When he went a hunting,
I put the bow in its case for him.
When he went to fish,
I arranged his line for him.
What did he take in angling?
Bream and tench; -
Bream and tench,
While people [looked on] to see.
