The literature in Autumn Equinox
Poems of Tang Dynasty about the Autumn Equinox
Enjoy the Moon in Mid-autumn
by Li Pin (Tang Dynasty)
Autumn Equinox stops tonight,
The moon is bright.
It appears from the deep blue sea,
Walking through the distant place.
The sky is clean,
All monsters wish not to be seen.
The scene cannot be compared,
But will stop by the cock crow.
A Clear Evening
by Du Fu (Tang Dynasty)
The sunset is still bright,
Afterlight stays in the sky.
The rainbow crosses the river,
Few raindrops in the gorge.
My dear guest will fly away like wild geese;
I will stay here like a bear getting fat.
He will be here this autumn equinox,
Dew on the bamboo tells the night
