《罗州》

Library Resources
1 罗州:
罗州山中多孔雀,群飞者数十为偶。雌者尾短,无金翠。雄者生三年,有小尾,五年成大尾。始春而生,三四月后复凋,与花萼相荣衰。然自喜其尾而甚妬,凡欲山栖,必先择有置尾之地,然后止焉。南人生捕者,候甚雨,往擒之,尾沾而重,不能高翔,人虽至。且爱其尾,恐人所伤,不复骞翔也。虽驯养颇久,见美妇人好衣裳与童子丝服者,必逐而啄之。芳时媚景,闻管弦笙歌,必舒张翅尾。盻睇而舞。若有意焉。山谷夷民烹而食之,味如鹅,解百毒。人食其肉,饮药不能愈病。其血与其首,解大毒。南人得其卵,使鸡伏之即成。其脚稍屈。其鸣若曰都护。土人取其尾者,持刀于丛篁可隐之处自蔽,伺过,急断其尾,若不即断。廻首一顾。金翠无复光彩。出《纪闻》
