There is a solitary russet pear tree,
[But] its leaves are luxuriant.
Alone I walk unbefriended ; –
Is it because there are no other people ?
But none are like the sons of one's father.
O ye travellers,
Why do ye not sympathize with me ?
Without brothers as I am,
Why do ye not help me ?

There is a solitary russet pear tree,
[But] its leaves are abundant.
Alone I walk uncared for ; –
Is it that there are not other people ?
But none are like those of one's own surname.
O ye travellers,
Why do ye not sympathize with me ?
Without brothers as I am,
Why do ye not help me ?
