No matter how I spread my arms
English translation © Alex Fyffe

No matter how I spread my arms
I cannot fly at all,
But unlike me, a flying bird
Cannot run fast on ground.

Though I rock my body back and forth
It makes no pretty sounds,
Yet unlike me, a ringing bell
Does not know many songs.

A bell, a bird, and also me,
All are different, all are good.
