O you, with the blue collar,
Prolonged is the anxiety of my heart.
Although I do not go [to you],
Why do you not continue your messages [to me] ?

O you with the blue [strings to your] girdle-gems,
Long, long do I think of you.
Although I do not go [to you],
Why do you not come [to me] ?

How volatile are you and dissipated,
By the look-out tower on the wall !
One day without the sight of you,
Is like three months.

Legge 91

Votre collet est bien bleu
et mon cœur est bien troublé !...
Si vers vous je ne vais pas,
faut-il que vous ne chantiez ?

Vos breloques sont bien bleues
et mes pensées bien troublées !
Si vers vous je ne vais pas,
faut-il que vous ne veniez ?

Allez ! et promenez-vous
sur le mur et sur la tour !
Un jour où je ne vous vois
me paraît comme trois mois !

Granet XXXVIII.
