Default Hope and connection through the looming darkness

Just watched the stunning if inscrutable film "The Magus." Quite a
contrast to Senor Quinn in Requiem for a Heavyweight, and just as
brilliantly acted.

In it, he cites as a T'ang Dynasty poem:

"Here on the frontier, there are falling leaves
although my neighbors are all barbarians
and you, you are a thousand miles away
there are always two cups on my table."

These lines are quoted all over the web, but without more definitive
attribution. Does anyone here have more precise information?
