Shijing I. 11. (135)

He assigned us a house large and spacious ;
But now at every meal there is nothing left.
Alas that he could not continue as he began !

He assigned us at every meal four dishes of grain ;
But now at every meal we do not get our fill.
Alas that he could not continue as he began !

Legge 135
