Books referencing 《采薇》 Library Resources
1 采薇:
采薇采薇、薇亦作止。
曰归曰归、岁亦莫止。
靡室靡家、猃狁之故。
不遑启居、猃狁之故。
Cai Wei:
Let us gather the thorn-ferns, let us gather the thorn-ferns;
The thorn-ferns are now springing up.
When shall we return? When shall we return?
It will be late in the [next] year.
Wife and husband will be separated,
Because of the Xian-yun.
We shall have no leisure to rest,
Because of the Xian-yun.

2 采薇:
采薇采薇、薇亦柔止。
曰归曰归、心亦忧止。
忧心烈烈、载饥载渴。
我戍未定、靡使归聘。
Cai Wei:
Let us gather the thorn-ferns, let us gather the thorn-ferns;
The thorn-ferns are now tender.
When shall we return? When shall we return?
Our hearts are sorrowful;
Our hearts are sad and sorrowful;
We shall hunger, we shall thirst.
While our service on guard is not finished,
We can send no one home to enquire about our families.

3 采薇:
采薇采薇、薇亦刚止。
曰归曰归、岁亦阳止。
王事靡盬、不遑启处。
忧心孔疚、我行不来。
Cai Wei:
Let us gather the thorn-ferns, let us gather the thorn-ferns;
The thorn-ferns are now hard.
When shall we return? When shall we return?
The year will be in the tenth month.
But the king's business must not be slackly performed;
We shall have no leisure to rest.
Our sorrowing hearts are in great distress;
But we shall not return from our expedition.

4 采薇:
彼尔维何、维常之华。
彼路斯何、君子之车。
戎车既驾、四牡业业。
岂敢定居、一月三捷。
Cai Wei:
What is that so gorgeous?
It is the flowers of the cherry tree.
What carriage is that?
It is the carriage of our general.
His war carriage is yoked;
The four steeds are strong.
Dare we remain inactive?
In one month we shall have three victories.

5 采薇:
驾彼四牡、四牡騤騤。
君子所依、小人所腓。
四牡翼翼、象弭鱼服。
岂不日戒、猃狁孔棘。
Cai Wei:
The four steeds are yoked,
The four steeds, eager and strong; -
The confidence of the general,
The protection of the men.
The four steeds move regularly, like wings; -
There are the bow with its ivory ends, and the seal-skin quiver.
Shall we not daily warn one another?
The business of the Xian-yun is very urgent.

6 采薇:
昔我往矣、杨柳依依。
今我来思、雨雪霏霏

行道迟迟、载渴载饥。
我心伤悲、莫知我哀。
Cai Wei:
At first, when we set out,
The willows were fresh and green;
Now, when we shall be returning,
The snow will be falling in clouds.
Long and tedious will be our marching;
We shall hunger; we shall thirst.
Our hearts are wounded with grief,
And no one knows our sadness.
