山居吟 1
Shan Ju Yin

As with Yu Hui Tushan, although the version here is quite different from the one in SQMP, it remains attributed to Mao Minzhong, a famous qin player who flourished at the end of the Southern Song dynasty in Hangzhou, its capital.

For further information see the Shen Qi Mi Pu version of Shan Ju Yin.

 
Zheyin Shizi Qinpu preface:4

The introduction is the same as in Shen Qi Mi Pu, except that it begins

"The Beyond-Sounds Immortal says...according to the Royal Ancestor's Handbook..." and it ends with:

Ah! This wish to find pleasure among springs and rocks is so interesting!

5. Original Chinese section titles and lyrics
The original section titles can also be seen along with the preface under 山居吟. These section titles together with the original lyrics are as follows:

  1. 伴泉石
    飲泉憩石臥烟霞,拙生涯。白雲松下,與丘壑增價,時世無拘,產網空勞他懸掛。西風難落,晚節黃花,楓林噪暮鴉,是山中宰相人家。客來時,行霸煮香茶。
  2. 盧天地
    天地茫茫天地一丹丘,風月夷猷。此身誰與同儔,結茅友,伴巢由,老春秋, 芝爛床頭,經卷與香篝,遣閒愁。逍遙遠鳴騶,此身無辱無憂,西風門掩晚節黃花瘦。優遊,雲腴漲雪任閒遊,酒是鈎詩釣,不減王侯。
  3. 煙霞春曉
    一枕煙霞春暁足,曉日的烘巖谷。知心只有啣花鹿,時時來送福,情最篤。拭飮洗心泉一掬,細草和煙束,引藤蘿補遮茅屋。聽松風聲簌簌,細和瑤琴一曲。
  4. 風月盤桓
    四時風月盤桓,投閒,懶將足踏長安,萬事無干,做箇山居漢,尋箇樵夫伴。任人間花落也春殘,天地寬,土坑與蒲團,砂鍋和酒鏇,妻子得團欒。一任雲舒捲,形骸變,孤月靑天遠遠。

The lyrics are also on this .pdf file (from Zha Guide 86 [610]).
