Su Shi, a poet in the Song dynasty who is famous for his bold and unconstrained style, described his spirit-visit to the ancient land where an epic third-century naval battle (The Battle of Red Cliffs) took place in his masterpiece Red Cliff Meditation (《念奴娇·赤壁怀古》 ). He returned to the realistic world with a toast to the moon to express his reminiscence of a remote past and transcendent broad-mindedness: Just like the history with magnificent rise and fall, life is a dream. Let's all give an awesome toast to the moon and enjoy the music transcending space and time!
