The Pear-Tree

This shade-bestowing pear-tree, thou
Hurt not, nor lay its leafage low;
Beneath it slept the Duke of Shaou.

This shade-bestowing pear-tree, thou
Hurt not, nor break one leafy bough;
Beneath it stayed the Duke of Shaou.

This shade-bestowing pear-tree, thou
Hurt not, nor bend one leafy bough,
Beneath it paused the Duke of Shaou.

Hello, I just wanted to let you know that Allen Upward is the translator of the poem and not the author! " The Pear Tree" was originally composed anonymously c.500 in China and is part of the long Chinese literary history of naturalistic and minimalist poetry.
