A Walnut Tree standing by the roadside bore an abundant crop
of fruit. For the sake of the nuts, the passers-by broke its branches
with stones and sticks. The Walnut-Tree piteously exclaimed,
"O wretched me! that those whom I cheer with my fruit should
repay me with these painful requitals!"
(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
