English translation: James Legge [?]
Books referencing 《關雎》 Library Resources
1 關雎:
關關雎鳩、在河之洲。
窈窕淑女、君子好逑。
Guan Ju:
Guan-guan go the ospreys,
On the islet in the river.
The modest, retiring, virtuous, young lady:
For our prince a good mate she.

2 關雎:
參差荇菜、左右流之。
窈窕淑女、寤寐求之。
求之不得、寤寐思服。
悠哉悠哉、輾轉反側。
Guan Ju:
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.

3 關雎:
參差荇菜、左右采之。
窈窕淑女、琴瑟友之。
參差荇菜、左右芼之。
窈窕淑女、鍾鼓樂之。
Guan Ju:
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.
