Oh, it’s all my happiness that I love you.
How fortunate! My first love is like
A beautiful plump fish, who
Had been looking around for food freely till
It was hooked fast by your eyes.
Since then it has lived in a permanent dwelling,
And no longer has to wander from place to place,
Swimming to the surface of the water from time to time
For a mouthful of the fresh air,
Or, diving into the depth of the waterweeds
To bite loneliness.
Oh, my heart is all filled with you.
Like a little flooding river,
It has learned to sing this sweet song,
For it’s all my happiness that I love you!
