何草不黃 HE CAO BU HUANG

何草不黃、何日不行。
何人不將、經營四方。

何草不玄、何人不矜。
哀我征夫、獨為匪民。

匪兕匪虎、率彼曠野。
哀我征夫、朝夕不暇。

有芃者孤、率彼幽草。
有棧之車、行彼周道。

Every plant is yellow ;
Every day we march .
Every man is moving about ,
Doing service in some quarter of the kingdom .

Every plant is purple ;
Every man is torn from his wife .
Alas for us employed on these expeditions !
How are we alone dealt with as if we were not men ?

We are not rhinoceroses , we are not tigers ,
To be kept in these desolate wilds .
Alas for us employed on these expeditions !
Morning and night we have no leisure .

The long-tailed foxes ,
May keep among the dark grass .
And our box-carts ,
Keep moving along the great roads .
