English translation: James Legge [?]
Books referencing 《泉水》 Library Resources
1 泉水:
毖彼泉水、亦流于淇。
有懷于衛、靡日不思。
孌彼諸姬、聊與之謀。
Quan Shui:
How the water bubbles up from that spring,
And flows away to the Qi!
My heart is in Wei;
There is not a day I do not think of it.
Admirable are those, my cousins;
I will take counsel with them.

2 泉水:
出宿于泲、飲餞于禰。
女子有行、遠父母兄弟。
問我諸姑、遂及伯姊。
Quan Shui:
When I came forth, I lodged in Ji,
And we drank the cup of convoy at Ni.
When a young lady goes [to be married],
She leaves her parents and brothers;
[But] I would ask for my aunts,
And then for my elder sister.

3 泉水:
出宿于干、飲餞于言。
載脂載牽、還車言邁。
遄臻于衛、不瑕有害。
Quan Shui:
I will go forth and lodge in Gan,
And we drink the cup of convoy at Yan.
I will grease the axle and fix the pin,
And the returning chariot will proceed.
Quickly shall we arrive in Wei; -
But would not this be wrong?

4 泉水:
我思肥泉、茲之永歎。
思須與漕、我心悠悠。
駕言出遊、以寫我憂。
Quan Shui:
I think of the Feiquan,
I am ever sighing about it.
I think of Xu and Cao,
Long, long, my heart dwells with them.
Let me drive forth and travel there,
To dissipate my sorrow.
