菀柳 WAN LIU

有菀者柳、不尚息焉。
上帝甚蹈、無自暱焉。
俾予靖之、後予極焉。

有菀者柳、不尚愒焉。
上帝甚蹈、無自瘵焉。
俾予靖之、後予邁焉。

有鳥高飛、亦傅于天。
彼人之心、于何其臻。
曷予靖之、居以凶矜。

There is a luxuriant willow tree ; --
Who would not wish to rest [under it] ?
[But this] god is very changeable ; --
Do not approach him .
If I were to [try and] order his affairs ,

角弓 JIAO GONG

騂騂角弓、翩其反矣。
兄弟昏姻、無胥遠矣。

爾之遠矣、民胥然矣。
爾之教矣、民胥傚矣。

此令兄弟、綽綽有裕。
不令兄弟、交相為瘉。

民之無良、相怨一方。
受爵不讓、至于已斯亡。

老馬反為駒、不顧其後。
如食宜饇、如酌孔取。

毋教猱升木、如塗塗附。
君子有徽猷、小人與屬。

雨雪瀌瀌、見晛曰消。
莫肯下遺、式居婁驕。

采菽 CAI SHU

采菽采菽、筐之筥之。
君子來朝、何錫予之。
雖無予之、路車乘馬。
又何予之、玄袞及黼。

觱沸檻泉、言采其芹。
君子來朝、言觀其旂。
其旂淠淠、鸞聲嘒嘒。
載驂載駟、君子所屆。

赤芾在股、邪幅在下。
彼交匪紓、天子所予。
樂只君子、天子命之。
樂只君子、福祿申之。

維柞之枝、其葉蓬蓬。
樂只君子、殿天子之邦。
樂只君子、萬福攸同。
平平左右、亦是率從。

汎汎楊舟、紼纚維之。
樂只君子、天之葵之。
樂只君子、福祿膍之。
優哉游哉、亦是戾矣。

魚藻 YU ZAO

魚在在藻、有頒其首。
王在在鎬、豈樂飲酒。

魚在在藻、有莘其尾。
王在在鎬、飲酒樂豈。

魚在在藻、依于其蒲。
王在在鎬、有那其居。

The fishes are there , there among the pondweed ,
Showing their large heads .
The king is here , here in Hao ,
At ease and happy , while he drinks .
