Full video also available at Bilibili: 小雅 湛露
A simple poem flourished with the feeling of joy, abundance, satisfactory and inner peace by which I do believe it was created during one of the four great time(盛世, 成康之治) in Chinese history. The history background on wine drinking is briefed.
The literature image of crystal dew created in this poem was inherited and developed by the late comers, which still sounds in today’s literature.
