English translation: James Legge [?]
Books referencing 《卷耳》 Library Resources
1 卷耳:
采采卷耳、不盈頃筐。
嗟我懷人、寘彼周行。
Juan Er :
I was gathering and gathering the mouse-ear,
But could not fill my shallow basket.
With a sigh for the man of my heart,
I placed it there on the highway.

2 卷耳:
陟彼崔嵬、我馬虺隤。
我姑酌彼金罍、維以不永懷。
Juan Er :
I was ascending that rock-covered height,
But my horses were too tired to breast it.
I will now pour a cup from that gilded vase,
Hoping I may not have to think of him long.

3 卷耳:
陟彼高岡、我馬玄黃。
我姑酌彼兕觥、維以不永傷。
Juan Er :
I was ascending that lofty ridge,
But my horses turned of a dark yellow.
I will now take a cup from that rhinoceros' horn,
Hoping I may not have long to sorrow.

4 卷耳:
陟彼砠矣、我馬瘏矣、我僕痡矣、云何吁矣。
Juan Er :
I was ascending that flat-topped height,
But my horses became quite disabled,
And my servants were [also] disabled.
Oh! how great is my sorrow!
