《柏舟 - Bo Zhou》

English translation: James Legge [?] Library Resources
1 柏舟:
泛彼柏舟、在彼中河。
髧彼两髦、实维我仪。
之死矢靡它。
母也天只、不谅人只。
Bo Zhou:
It floats about, that boat of cypress wood,
There in the middle of the He.
With his two tufts of hair falling over his forehead,
He was my mate;
And I swear that till death I will have no other.
O mother, O Heaven,
Why will you not understand me?

2 柏舟:
泛彼柏舟、在彼河侧。
髧彼两髦、实维我特。
之死矢靡慝。
母也天只、不谅人只。
Bo Zhou:
It floats about, that boat of cypress wood,
There by the side of the He.
With his two tufts of hair falling over his forehead,
He was my only one;
And I swear that till death I will not do the evil thing.
O mother, O Heaven,
Why will you not understand me?
