Well, time of the year again, it's tomorrow. There are many Chinese poems and literature works about the moon and Mid-Autumn Festival. Here is one came into my mind by Su Shi (1037-1101 A.D.)
Don't even try to copy and paste into Google Translate, it would make absolutely no sense at all. It's in classical literature Chinese, difficult even for native Chinese speaker.
You can find Wikipedia translated version here:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shui_diao_ge_tou
But I much prefer the interpretation on this site (in Chinese):http://www.epochtimes.com/b5/7/9/22/n1843341.htm
Here is my translation and interpretation of the poem using the information from the above site:
When was the moon formed from the beginning? I raise my wine goblet and asked God.
I do not know any palace in heaven dwelt by the immortals nor which year is tonight Mid-Autumn Festival.
I also want to ride on the wind and ascend into the sky to the immortals' jade palace, but I fear that I might not withstand the cold in high places.
In the end, I'm staying where I am and dancing in the bathing moonlight.
Shifting moonlight shines on red brightly decorated buildings and shines lowly through the highly ornate carved doors and windows and onto those who cannot sleep with troubled mind.
The moon should not have any grudge against anyone but why is it always when one has just parted from love one and feeling lonely, it is especially bright and full?
Life is always full of comings and goings and the moon is always waxing and waning. One cannot wish for staying together eternally as this is untenable since ancient times.
Although separated in distance, so long as people are safe, we can still through thousands of miles, sharing the "internet"*!
*Well, my bit of literature graffiti to lighten the tone! It should be "beautiful moonlight".
