木兰诗 / 木兰辞
佚名

唧唧复唧唧,木兰当户织。不闻机杼声,惟闻女叹息。
问女何所思,问女何所忆。女亦无所思,女亦无所忆。
昨夜见军帖,可汗大点兵,军书十二卷,卷卷有爷名。
阿爷无大儿,木兰无长兄,愿为市鞍马,从此替爷征。
东市买骏马,西市买鞍鞯,南市买辔头,北市买长鞭。

旦辞爷娘去,暮宿黄河边,不闻爷娘唤女声,但闻黄河流水鸣溅溅。
旦辞黄河去,暮至黑山头,不闻爷娘唤女声,但闻燕山胡骑鸣啾啾。

万里赴戎机,关山度若飞。
朔气传金柝,寒光照铁衣。
将军百战死,壮士十年归。

归来见天子,天子坐明堂。策勋十二转,赏赐百千强。
可汗问所欲,木兰不用尚书郎,愿驰千里足,送儿还故乡。

爷娘闻女来,出郭相扶将;阿姊闻妹来,当户理红妆;小弟闻姊来,磨刀霍霍向猪羊。
开我东阁门,坐我西阁床,脱我战时袍,著我旧时裳。当窗理云鬓,对镜帖花黄。
出门看火伴,火伴皆惊忙:同行十二年,不知木兰是女郎。

雄兔脚扑朔,雌兔眼迷离;双兔傍地走,安能辨我是雄雌?
