長門賦  司馬相如

孝武皇帝陳皇后時得幸,頗妬。別在長門宮,愁悶悲思。聞蜀郡成都司馬相如天下工為文,奉黃金百斤為相如、文君取酒,因于解悲愁之辭。而相如為文以悟主上,陳皇后復得親幸。其辭曰:

夫何一佳人兮,步逍遙以自虞。魂踰佚而不反兮,形枯槁而獨居。言我朝往而暮來兮,飲食樂而忘人。心慊移而不省故兮,交得意而相親。

伊予志之慢愚兮,懷貞慤之懽心。願賜問而自進兮,得尚君之玉音。奉虛言而望誠兮,期城南之離宮。脩薄具而自設兮,君曾不肯乎幸臨。廓獨潛而專精兮,天飄飄而疾風。登蘭臺而遙望兮,神怳怳而外淫。浮雲鬱而四塞兮,天窈窈而晝陰。雷殷殷而響起兮,聲象君之車音。飄風迴而赴閨兮,舉帷幄之襜襜。桂樹交而相紛兮,芳酷烈之誾誾。孔雀集而相存兮,玄猨嘯而長吟。翡翠脅翼而來萃兮,鸞鳳翔而北南。

心憑噫而不舒兮,邪氣壯而攻中。下蘭臺而周覽兮,步從容於深宮。正殿塊以造天兮,鬱並起而穹崇。間徙倚於東廂兮,觀夫靡靡而無窮。擠玉戶以撼金鋪兮,聲噌吰而似鐘音。刻木蘭以為榱兮,飾文杏以為梁。羅丰茸之遊樹兮,離樓梧而相撐。施瑰木之欂櫨兮,委參差以槺梁。時仿佛以物類兮,象積石之將將。五色炫以相曜兮,煥爛爗而成光。緻錯石之瓴甓兮,象瑇瑁之文章。張羅綺之幔帷兮,垂楚組之連綱。撫柱楣以從容兮,覽曲臺之央央。白鶴噭以哀號兮,孤雌跱於枯楊。

日黃昏而望絕兮,悵獨託於空堂。懸明月以自照兮,徂清夜於洞房。援雅琴以變調兮,奏愁思之不可長。案流徵以卻轉兮,聲幼玅而復揚。貫歷覽其中操兮,意慷慨而自卬。左右悲而垂淚兮,涕流離而從橫。舒息悒而增欷兮,蹝履起而彷徨。揄長袂以自翳兮,數昔日之諐殃。無面目之可顯兮,遂頹思而就牀。摶芬若以為枕兮,席荃蘭而茝香。忽寢寐而夢想兮,魄若君之在旁。惕寤覺而無見兮,魂迋迋若有亡。衆雞鳴而愁予兮,起視月之精光。觀衆星之行列兮,畢昴出於東方。望中庭之藹藹兮,若季秋之降霜。夜曼曼其若歲兮,懷鬱鬱其不可再更。澹偃蹇而待曙兮,荒亭亭而復明。妾人竊自悲兮,究年歲而不敢忘。
