The book of odes and hymns – part 1

GUAN SUI

Guan-guan go the ospreys,

On the islet in the river.

The modest, retiring, virtuous, young lady:

For our prince a good mate she.

Here long,there short, is the duckweed,

To the left, to the right, borne about by the current.

The modest, retiring,virtuous, young lady:

Waking and sleeping, he sought her.

He sought her and found her not,

And waking and sleeping he thought about her.

Long he thought; oh ! long and anxiously;

On his side, on his back, he turned , and back again.

Here long, there short, is the duckweed;

On the left, on the right, we gather it.

The modest, retiring, virtuous, young lady:

With lutes, small and large, let us give her friendly welcome.

Here long, there short, is the duckweed;

On the left, on the right, we cook and present it.

The modest, retiring, virtuous, young lady: 

With bells and drums let us show our delight in her.

 

關睢  

關關雎鳩、在河之洲。

窈宨淑女、君子好逑。

參差荇菜、左右流之。

窈宨淑女、寤寐求之。

求之不得、寤寐思服。

悠哉悠哉、輾轉反側。

參差荇菜、左右采之。

窈宨淑女、琴瑟友之。

參差荇菜、左右芼之。

窈宨淑女、 鍾鼓樂之。
