Li Bai (701–762), Chinese poet
by Shigeyoshi Obata (1888-1971)
a jar of wine I sit by the flowering trees.
drink alone, and where are my friends?
the moon above looks down on me;
call and lift my cup to his brightness.
see, there goes my shadow before me.
We're a party of three, I say, –
the poor moon can't drink,
my shadow but dances around me,
all friends to-night,
drinker, the moon and the shadow.
our revelry be meet for the spring time!
sing, the wild moon wanders the sky.
dance, my shadow goes tumbling about.
we're awake, let us join in carousal;
sweet drunkenness shall ever part us.
us pledge a friendship no mortals know,
often hail each other at evening
across the vast and vaporous space!
