《软玉鞭》

Library Resources
1 软玉鞭:
德宗甞幸兴庆“庆”原作“废”,据明钞本改。宫,于复壁间得宝匣,中获玉鞭。其末有文。曰软玉鞭。即天宝中异国所献也。瑞妍节文,光明可鉴,虽蓝田之美,不能过也。屈之则首尾相就,舒之则径直如绳。虽以斧鑕锻斫。“斫”原作“研”,据《杜阳杂编》改,终不伤缺。德宗叹为神物,遂命联蝉绣为囊,碧蚕丝为鞘。碧蚕丝,即永泰元年东海弥罗国所贡也。云其国有桑,枝干盘屈,覆地而生。大者亦连延十数里,小者亦荫百亩。其上有蚕,可长四寸。其色金,其丝碧,亦谓之金蚕丝。纵之一尺,引之一丈。反捻为鞘,表里通莹如贯瑟,虽并十夫之力,挽之不断。为琴弦,鬼神愁,为弩弦,则箭出一千步,为弓弦,则箭出五百步。上令藏于内府。至朱泚犯禁阙,其鞭不知所在。出《杜阳杂编》
