The book of odes and hymns – part 66

JUN ZI YU YI

My husband is away on service,

And I know not when he will return.

Where is he now?

The fowls roost in their holes in the walls;

And in the evening of the day,

The goats and cows come down [from the hill] ;

But my husband is away on service.

How can I but keep thinking of him?

My husband is away on service,

Not for days [merely] or for months.

When will he come back to me?

The fowls roost on their perches;

And in the evening of the day,

The goats and cows come down down and home;

But my husband is away on service.

Oh if he be but kept from hunger and thirst!
