From the She-Ching
(Chinese classic, B.C. 1000)
|A FISH in some translucent lake|
|Must ever live to fear a prey|
|He cannot hide himself away|
|From those who come the fish to take.|
|I, too, may not escape the eyes|| 5|
|Of those who cause these miseries;|
|My sorrowing heart must grieve to know|
|My countrys deep distress and woe.|
