Shijing I. 13. (149)

Not for the violence of the wind ;
Not for a rushing motion of a chariot ; –
But when I look to the road to Zhou,
Am I pained to the core of my heart.

Not for the whirlwind ;
Not for the irregular motion of a chariot ; –
But when I look to the road to Zhou,
Am I sad to the core of my heart.

Who can cook fish ?
I will wash his boilers for him.
Who will loyally go to the west ?
I will cheer him with good words.
