聽琴 Listening to a Qin
一百六十三首 163 in number

  1. 聽琴 Listening to a Qin (V/424)
    by 蕭愨
    Xiao Que. This poem is translated in HJAS 57, Ronald Egan, Music, Sadness and the Qin, p. 42).

  2. 聽琴 Listening to a Qin (V/424)
    Length: [5+5] x 4; by 張喬 Zhang Qiao (ICTCL p.818: jinshi 860 - 873)

    清明轉琴珍,弄中湖水寒。 ("On Qingming turn the qin pegs, while playing the lake water is cold"; see comment)
    能令坐來客,不語自相看。
    靜恐鬼神出,急疑風雨殘。
    幾時歸嶺嶠,更過洞庭彈。

    Comment: Elsewhere the first phrase of this poem is given as, "清月轉瑤軫.... With a clear moon turn the jade pegs...."; otherwise the poem is the same. I do not know how this version came to be different, though "jade pegs" is a clear reference to qin. "Qingming" may also simply be "bright and clear", rather than referring to the festival of that name. Note, however, the mention in line 3 of "spirits coming out".

    喧啾百鳥群,忽見孤鳳凰。
    躋攀分寸不可上,失勢一落千丈強。
    嗟余有兩耳,未省聽絲篁。

    蔡女昔造胡笳聲,一彈一十有八拍。
    胡人落淚沾邊草,漢使斷腸對歸客。
    古戍蒼蒼烽火寒,大荒沈沈飛雪白。
    先拂商弦後角羽,四郊秋葉驚摵摵。
    董夫子,通神明,深山竊聽來妖精。
    言遲更速皆應手,將往復旋如有情。
    空山百鳥散還合,萬里浮雲陰且晴。
    嘶酸雛鴈失羣夜,斷絕胡兒戀母聲。
    川爲淨其波,鳥亦罷其鳴。
    烏孫部落家鄉遠,邏娑沙塵哀怨生。
    幽音變調忽飄灑,長風吹林雨墮瓦。
    迸泉颯颯飛木末,野鹿呦呦走堂下。
    長安城連東掖垣,鳳凰池對青瑣門。
    高才脫略名與利,日夕望君抱琴至。

    繞指弄嗚咽,青絲激潺湲。
    演漾怨楚雲,虛徐韻秋煙。。。。

    義重莫若妻,生離不如死。
    誓將死同穴,其奈生無子。
    商陵迫禮教,婦出不能止。
    舅姑明旦辭,夫妻中夜起。
    起聞雙鶴別,若與人相似。
    聽其悲唳聲,亦如不得已。
    青田八九月,遼城一萬里。
    徘徊去住雲,嗚咽東西水。
    寫之在琴曲,聽者酸心髓。
    況當秋月彈,先入憂人耳。
    怨抑掩朱絃,沉吟停玉指。
    一聞無兒嘆,相念兩如此。
    無兒雖薄命,有妻偕老矣。
    倖免生別離,猶勝商陵氏。

  51. 聽彈幽蘭 Listening to a Playing of You Lan (V/428)

    尤宜聽《三樂》,安慰白頭公。(公 elsewhere is 翁)

  54. 聽五絃琴 Listening to a Five-String Qin (V/428)
    by 白居易

    清歌且停唱,紅袂亦停舞。   (清歌且罷唱?)
    趙叟抱五弦,宛轉离前舞。   (宛轉當胸撫? 宛轉胸前撫?)
    大聲但若泉,颯颯風和雨。   (大聲粗若散? 大聲徂若散?)
    小聲細欲絕,切切鬼神語。
    又如鵲報喜,轉作猿啼苦。
    十指無定音,顛倒宮商羽。   (顛倒宮徵羽?)
    坐客聞此聲,形神若無主。
    行客聞此聲,駐足不能舉。
    嗟嗟俗人耳,好今不好古。
    所以北窗琴,日日生塵土。   (所以綠窗琴?)
