  1. 琴賦 Rhapsody on the Qin (V/388)
    by 傅毅 Fu Yi (c.47 - c.92; 970.185, Bio/2326; contrast
    #29 below)

    歷嵩岑而將降。睹鴻梧於幽阻。高百仞而不枉。對脩條以持處。蹈通涯而將圖。遊茲梧之所宜。蓋雅琴之麗樸。乃升伐其孫枝。命離婁使布繩。施公輸之剞劂。遂彫琢而成器。揆神農之初制。盡聲變之奧妙。抒心志之鬱滯。

  2. 琴賦 Rhapsody on the Qin (V/388)
    by 馬融
    Ma Rong (79-166)

    惟梧桐之所生。在衡山之峻陂。於是遨閒公子。中道失志。孤煢特行。懷閔抱思。昔師曠三奏。而神物下降。玄鶴二八。軒舞於庭。何琴德之深哉。

  3. 琴賦 Rhapsody on the Qin (V/388)
    by 蔡邕
    Cai Yong (133-192).
    QSCB, Chapter 2.B. (p.19) says that Cai Yong's mention here of Watering Horses at (Water Holes by) the Great Wall (飲馬長城[窟] Yinma Changcheng [Ku]; he also wrote a separate poem of this title) as a qin melody, combined with its inclusion in YFSJ (p.555), suggests the strong connection of the qin with folk melodies.

    (爾乃)言求茂木。周流四垂。觀彼椅桐。層山之陂。丹華煒燁。綠葉參差。甘露潤其末。涼風扇其枝。鸞鳳翔其巔。玄鶴巢其岐。考之詩人。琴瑟是宜。爾乃清聲發兮五音舉。發宮商兮動角羽。曲引興兮繁弦撫。然後哀聲既發。秘弄乃開。左手抑揚。右手徘徊。指掌反覆。抑案藏摧。於是繁弦既抑。雅韻乃揚。仲尼思歸。鹿鳴三章。梁甫悲吟。周公越裳。青雀西飛。別鶴東翔。飲馬長城。楚曲明光。楚姬遺歎。雞鳴高桑。走獸率舞。飛鳥下翔。感激茲歌。一低一昂。

    Wen Xuan III, p.374)
    original has 成公緩 Chenggong Huan (xxx; presumably a mistake)

    遂乃創新聲改舊用君山獻曲。伯喈奏弄金飆迴其流聲兮。華堂返其逸響心怡懌而踊躍兮。神感蕩而忽恍。伯牙彈而駟馬仰秣。子野揮而玄鶴鳴。清角發而陽氣亢。白雲奏而風雨零。

  22. 昭文不鼓琴賦 Rhapsody on Zhao Wen Not Playing the Qin (V/397)
    by 吳冕 Wu Mian (late Tang?; 3453.xxx; 冕 1576.xxx). This is an apparent reference to a passage in Zhuangzi. The full text of the rhapsody is,

    息絃軫兮,大樸元同,忘琴音兮,至人守中。道不緣情,則去聲而外寂;德惟抱素,故含和而內融。於是見高士之心,出常人之境,其養貴默,其伎尚靜。及卷懷而克順,反不鼓而是逞。蘊藝如何,元德靡他,知迷則達,用晦實多。虛張不彈,俾指節而交暢;全聲入妙,吻心曲而同和。且人心靜為常,琴心虛為主,將寧體於道樞,亦寧器於德宇。懷之無故,常寂響而有餘;用之則虧,乃含音而莫吐。故自適於胸臆,亦何用於角羽,顏子所以如愚,昭文由是不鼓。近情好樂,尚德養空。罷奏南音,悟人間之客寄;不操三峽,體山下之泉蒙。斯懷柔之古者,竟生白於仙宮。

    夫動極則靜,音繁不複,守樸外真,含虛內肅。施絃罔舉,則見素而如絲;沈聲莫發,乃繁根而猶木。因雅韻而不奏,識道情之所蓄。此則恬然誰與?寂爾自耽,希夷既造,妙理難探。栗裏無絃,淵明則矯,王門碎質,安道更慚。是以飾外者貴其體備,厚內者尚其包含。於戲!琴心懸解,幽響何答?於以閑和,於以虛納。十指攸措,鹹制動而是宜;五音知常,各處寂而不雜。故琴默而美昭,信仁靜而道合。

  51. 霜鍾琴銘 Inscription for Shuangzhong Qin (V/404)
    Like
    #50 by Yu Bosheng? There seem to have been at least two qins of this name during the Yuan dynasty; if this inscription is for one of them, it is not clear which one. Rao, Section 8, mentions the qin of this name belonging to Xiao Xingyuan. And QSDQ Folio 19 has a poem about this qin. However, according to Zhou Mi (1232 - 1298), Shuangzhong was one of two apparently Tang dynasty qins belonging to another contemporary, Zhang Shouyi. 43311.290/2 霜鐘 says 張受益之琴名。(志雅堂雜抄)張受益有一琴,名霜鐘。 Qin belonging to Zhang Shouyi (10026.xxx!; 受益 3224.63xxx), quoting a statement to this effect from Zhiyatang Zachao (10573.67: 志雅堂,宋周密之屋名 Zhiyatang was the study of Zhou Mi).

  61. 七發 Seven Methods (V/406)
    by 枚乘 Mei Cheng (d.140 BCE; Bio/1454; 14883.9; recluse, writer)
    The full rhapsody (fu) is in Wen Xuan, with the extract quoted here being in Section 2 (of 8) in the Haixiao edition (p.1544).

    龍門之桐,高百尺而無枝。中鬱結之輪菌,根扶疏以分離。上有千仞之峰,下臨百丈之谿。湍流溯波,又澹淡之。其根半死半生。冬則烈風漂霰飛雪之所激也,夏則雷霆霹靂之所感也。朝則鸝黃鳱鴠鳴焉,暮則羈雌迷鳥宿焉。獨鵠晨號乎其上,鵾雞哀鳴翔乎其下。於是背秋涉冬,使琴摯斫斬以為琴,野繭之絲以為絃,孤子之鉤以為隱,九寡之珥以為約。使師堂操暢,伯子牙為之歌。歌曰:『麥秀蔪兮雉朝飛,向虛壑兮背槁槐,依絕區兮臨迴溪。』飛鳥聞之,翕翼而不能去;野獸聞之,垂耳而不能行;蚑蟜螻蟻聞之,拄喙而不能前。此亦天下之至悲也,太子能強起聽之乎?

    The mention here of 約 yue as perhaps a mistake for 㢩 di (targets?), which in turn might refer to harmonic markers, is further discussed here and under hui.
