The Ch’i and the Chϋ


OH, the Ch’i and the Chϋ
In their warrens have many fish,  
Sturgeons and snout fish,
Long-fish, yellow-jaws, mud-fish and carp,
For us to offer, to present,
And gain great blessings.

From: The Book of Songs (translated from the Chinese by Arthur Waley), New York, Grove Press, 1960.
