Hello IBC,

Can someone translate the writing on the Yusen pot in the below link from Yorozuen? I would like to learn more about the poetry on it.

Hi juniper07,

That's Chinese poet, 蘇軾の前赤壁賦/Su Shi's lyrics of the Former Red Cliff (Chibifu).
Translation below.


The first photo (top left) : 前赤壁 壬戌之秋 七月既望 蘇子與客泛舟 遊於
                                     In autumn of (1082 CE), during the full moon of the 7th lunar month,
                                     I and some friends went floating on a boat, and traveled…

The forth(middle right) : 遊於赤壁之下 清風徐来、水波不興 挙酒属客 誦明月之詩
                                   We traveled below Red Cliff. There was a fresh breeze, and the water remained smooth,
                                   as I raised my wine and poured it for my friends, I intoned the first verse of "The Moon Rises".

The third (middle left) : 歌窈窕之章 少焉月出於東山之上
                                  I sang phrases of "Shijing Guofeng".
                                  Soon, the moon came out above the eastern mountains,

The second (top right) : 徘徊於斗牛之間 白露横江、水光接天
                                  where it hovering  between Sagittarius and Altair.
                                 White dew extended across the river, shimmering water met the sky.



I put the photos into a proper order as the poetry goes.
