May people live long lives, so we can watch the same moon across a thousand li.
For @fytheuntamed ‘s Untamed Fall Fest. Day 1: Mid Autumn
Oct 1st 2020 is this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival – supposedly the fullest moon of the year. This is a time for families to gather and for people to miss their loved ones. Traditionally, we eat moon cakes and stare at the moon. I hope you get something round (and maybe even sweet) and eat it with someone dear.
I took the last two lines from《水调歌头》by Song Dynasty Poet Su Shi (Su Dongpo)
宋·苏轼 for my gif set because it’s iconic as a Mid-Autumn festival mood.
I think wwx and lwj have appropriate yearning for this. Rough translation of the full poem below cut. Enjoy! <3
