人子詩文選之六:為母祝壽

誰言寸草心,報得三春暉

(劉大鵬《退想齋日記》光緒十八年九月初十日)

今日余母亲大人六旬有二岁大寿。忻喜之至,黎明而起,余夫妻二人,向堂前拜寿,长子玠、次子瑄亦到堂前叩首鞠躬。余乃神前上香为母亲大人默祷曰:“吾母劳苦一生,待人甚厚,见穷贫之人,时常施舍,为善之念,未尝一日忘。但余不肖,莫能尽孝于高堂,酬大人之心于万分之一,余之罪不能逭也。今在神前,诚心默祷,伏愿将己寿减之,为吾亲加之,至于无穷。神其有灵,其鉴此苦衷乎。而且默佑身体安康,饮食如常,与吾父亲大人,福禄缕之,万寿无疆,是余之幸祷也。”祝毕,遂上堂为二亲献饭,虽无嘉肴旨酒,而所献之食,尚合父母之心,足以博欣喜之意念。由是一堂之上,其乐融融也,惜余无德以报罔极之恩耳。
