I pray you, Mr. Zhong,
Do not come leaping into my hamlet ;
Do not break my willow trees.
Do I care for them ?
But I fear my parents.
You, O Zhong, are to be loved,
But the words of my parents,
Are also to be feared.

I pray you, Mr. Zhong,
Do not come leaping over my wall ;
Do not break my mulberry trees.
Do I care for them ?
But I fear the words of my brothers.
You, O Zhong, are to be loved,
But the words of my brothers,
Are also to be feared.

I pray you, Mr. Zhong,
Do not come leaping into my garden ;
Do not break my sandal trees.
Do I care for them ?
But I dread the talk of people.
You, O Zhong, are to be loved,
But the talk of people,
Is also to be feared.

Legge 76

Je t'en supplie, ô seigneur Tchong,
ne saute pas dans mon village,
Ne casse pas mes plants de saule !...
comment oserais-je t'aimer ?..
J'ai la crainte de mes parents !...
Ô Tchong, il faut t'aimer, vraiment,
Mais ce que disent mes parents
il faut le craindre aussi, vraiment !

Je t'en supplie, ô seigneur Tchong,
ne saute pas sur ma muraille,
Ne casse pas mes plants de mûriers !...
comment oserais-je t'aimer ?..
j'ai la crainte de mes cousins !...
O Tchong, il faut t'aimer, vraiment,
Mais ce que disent mes cousins
il faut le craindre aussi, vraiment !

Je t'en supplie, ô seigneur Tchong,
ne saute pas dans mon verger,
Ne casse pas mes plants de t'an !...
Comment oserais-je t'aimer ?...
J'ai la crainte de ces cancans
O Tchong, il faut t'aimer, vraiment,
Mais les cancans que font les gens
il faut les craindre aussi, vraiment !

Granet XL.
