A poem written on the cup: Bells break the ship-borne roamer's dream and midnight still. This poem is from "Moring By Maple Bridge At Night" -  Zhangji, (712–715 to 779)

At moonset cry the crows, streaking the frosty sky

Dimly lit fishing boats beneath maples sadly lie

Beyond the city walls, from temple of cold hill

Bells break the ship-borne roamer's dream and midnight still.

(translated by Xu Yuanchong)

楓橋夜泊

張繼

月落烏啼霜滿天,

江楓漁火對愁眠。

姑蘇城外寒山寺,

夜半鐘聲到客船
