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.
