Otagaki Rengetsu (1791-1875), Sake cup with poem
Detail: Different angle

The poem on this sake cup is really impossible to
read. So you don't have to worry after drinking
that you can't read the poem, if you remember. It
might also need several cups of good sake to get
some meaning out of the few syllables. Some
otherwise less talented people have tried to
compose poetry after drinking. With good results
as some say.
