Among the flowers from a pot of wine

I drink alone beneath the bright moonshine.

I raise my cup to invite the moon, who blends

Her light with my shadow and we're three friends.

The moon does not know how to drink her share;

In vain my shadow follows me here and there.

Together with them for the time I stay

And make merry before spring's spend away.

I sing the moon to linger with my song;

My shadow disperses as I dance along.

Sober, we three remain cheerful and gay;

Drunken, we part and each goes his way.

Our friendship will outshine all earthly love;

Next time we'll meet beyond the stars above.


— Li Bai(A famous poet in Tang Dynastya famous poet in Tang Dynasty)
