If you meet a man of means, you may beg his help.
If he refuses, the fault is his, not yours.
Even begging can prove pleasurable
When what is begged for comes without a sense of burden.
Beffing has its own beauty if one supplicates
Before dutiful men whose hearts never say no.
There are men who never deny a request even in a dream.
Begging from such men is as good as giving.
Because men do exist on earth who never begrudge giving,
Others dare to plead before men's gaze.
The evils of begging will flee at the mere sight
Of those who are free from the evil of refusal.
There is rejoicing in a jubilant heart
Upon seeing those who give without scoffing or scorning.
Deprived of its beggars, this vast and verdant earth
Would be reduced to a sphere for the wooden play of puppets.
What glory would generous men have
If there were none to beg and receive their gifts?
One who begs and is refused should not be angry
For his own poverty is sufficient proof.
