Chinese Poetry

Brickshelf user tiger0207 posts beautifully photographed and consistently interesting creations that all seem to tell some sort of story. The problem is, tiger0207 tells these stories in Chinese. Here’s an example Bruce and I have been wondering about:

According to Classic-Castle Forums member Gumby (who showed the picture to his grandmother), this is a famous Chinese poem that goes something like this:

Fine red wine should be drunk at night,
I hear the sound of drinking, eating, and the zither atop my horse.
On the battlefield, the soliders are drunk,
Since olden times, how many people return from battle?

One mystery solved; dozens more to go! If anybody wants to send me information on the rest of the text in tiger0207’s gallery, just drop me a line at dunechaser AT gmail DOT com.
