毛詩:「《》,幽王小人在位君子在野君子盡心。」



君子如何

In the low, wet grounds, the mulberry trees are beautiful,
And their leaves are luxuriant.
When I see the princely men,
How great is the pleasure!

君子云何不樂

In the low, wet grounds, the mulberry trees are beautiful,
And their leaves are glossy.
When I see the princely men,
How can I be other than glad?

君子

In the low, wet grounds, the mulberry trees are beautiful,
And their leaves are dark.
When I see the princely men,
Their virtuous fame draws them close [to my heart].

不謂中心何日

In my heart I love them,
And why should I not say so?
In the core of my heart I keep them,
And never will forget them.

》,四句
