    文徵明 自書詩卷 水墨紙本 手卷 一五五〇年作

    引首:衡翁詩餘墨妙。嘉靖壬子(1552)中龝日隆,池山樵彭年題。
    鈐印:彭氏孔嘉

    題識:
    小院風生,正午夜,炎敲都靜。最喜是,寶月徐昇,碧天如鏡。玉露無聲河漢轉,翠陰灑面梧桐泠。是誰家,長笛起高樓,人初醒。
    千古事,何須問;明日計,何能定。趁樂事賞心,良辰美景。一笑且酬閒處樂,三人聊共樽前影。為思量,日出事還生。渾忘寢。右《夜坐》,調〈滿江紅〉。
    輕風驟雨展新荷,湖上晚涼多。行春橋外山如畫,緣山去,十里松蘿。滿眼綠陰芳草,無邊白鳥滄波。
    夕陽遙聽竹枝歌,天遠奈愁何。漁舟隱暎垂楊渡,都無繫,來往如梭。為問玉堂金馬,何如短棹輕蓑。右《汎石湖》,調寄〈風入松〉。
    酒醒夜堂涼,雨過湘簾捲。時見流螢度短墻,乍近作然遠。
    欲睡更遲回,徒倚欄杆徧。不覺西樓缺月斜,寂寞桐陰轉。右調〈卜算子〉。
    嘉靖庚戌(1550)三月廿又七日,雨窓適興,徵明時年八十又一。
    鈐印:歌斯樓、文徵明印、停雲館
    藏印:曾氏家藏、曾氏旾雪山房、煙霞泉石上人、煙霞泉(不全)

    跋尾:嘗聞山谷雲,作書須如快馬斫敶,故其筆勢遒逸,有龍驚鳳舉之態。東坡極稱賞之,客客猶有惜其未見藏真自敘者。其後山谷書變,寓草法於行楷,与少作大異,乃知方有得于醉素也。又五百年,而衡山翁得其訣,故學黃書者,徧天下惟衡翁。真跡望之,如何、劉、沈、謝,暗中能辨其人也。此卷為陳君應乹所藏,宜寶之哉。年識。
    鈐印:隆池山人、彭氏孔嘉

    現為美國私人收藏

    此大字行書詩卷,為文衡山八十一歲所書佳作,可謂人書俱老,用筆強健挺拔而不失使轉繞頓之趣,筆勢開合,有如長槍大戟蕩漾空際,英氣逼人,韻味十足,頗具黃山谷遺風。尤為難得的是,此詩卷經由文徵明的忘年之交兼門生池山樵彭年鑑藏。彭年不僅在此卷首敬題「衡翁詩餘墨妙」,更於跋尾長題,盛讚衡山翁得黃山谷書法之真傳,寓懷素草法於行楷之中,自成一格。彭年此一評價用於文徵明該幅行書詩卷,真可謂一語道破天機,至為貼切,真不愧為衡山翁的得意門生,深諳彼師書道之要害。
