drinking alone with the moon

A pot of wine before me amidst the flowers:
I drink alone–there’s none to drink with me.
Lifting my cup to invite the brilliant moon,
I find that with my shadow we are three.
Though the moon does not know how to drink,
And shadow in vain follows me,
Let me their company for the moment,
For while it’s spring one should be care-free.
As I sing, the moon lingers about;
As I dance, my shadow seems to fly.
When still sober we enjoy ourselves together;
When rapt with wine we bid each other good-bye.
Let us form a friendship free from passions
And meet in yonder distant sky.

Li Po

One thought on “drinking alone with the moon

  1. I often visit your website and have noticed that you don’t update it often. More frequent updates will give your
    website higher rank & authority in google. I know that writing content takes a lot
    of time, but you can always help yourself with miftolo’s tools which will shorten the time of
    creating an article to a few seconds.
