煮豆燃豆萁 zhǔ dòu rán dòu qí
漉菽以為汁 lù shú yǐ wéi zhì
萁在釜下燃 qí zài fǔ xià rán
豆在釜中泣 dòu zài fǔ zhōng qì
本是同根生 běn shì tóng gēn shēng
相煎何太急 xiāng jiān hé tài jì
People burn the beanstalk to boil beans,
filtering them to extract juice.
The beanstalks were burnt under the cauldron,
and the beans in the cauldron wailed:
"We were originally grown from the same root;
Why should we hound each other to death with such impatience?"
