蜉蝣之羽,衣裳楚楚。心之憂矣,於我歸處。

蜉蝣之翼,采采衣服。心之憂矣,於我歸息。

蜉蝣掘閱,麻衣如雪。心之憂矣,於我歸說。

ー詩經 曹風 蜉蝣.


The wings of the ephemera,
Are robes, bright and splendid.
My heart is grieved; –
Would they but come and abide with me!

The wings of the ephemera,
Are robes, variously adorned.
My heart is grieved; –
Would they but come and rest with me!

The ephemera bursts from its hole,
With a robe of hemp like snow.
My heart is grieved; –
Would they but come and lodge with me!

“Fu You (Mayfly)” from Odes Of Cao, Classic of Poetry
