黄冈之地多竹，大者如椽，竹工破之，刳去其节，用代陶瓦。比屋皆然，以其价廉而工省也。子城西北隅，雉堞圮毁，蓁莽荒秽，因作小楼二间，与月波楼通，远吞山光，平挹江濑。幽阒辽复，不可具状。夏宜急雨，有瀑布声；冬宜密雪，有碎玉声；宜鼓琴，琴调虚畅；宜咏诗，诗韵清绝；宜围棋，子声丁丁然；宜投壶，矢声铮铮然：皆竹楼之所助也。公退之暇，披鹤氅，戴华阳巾，手执《周易》一卷，焚香默坐，清遣世虑。江山之外，第见风帆沙鸟、烟云竹树而已。待其酒力醒，茶烟歇，送夕阳，迎素月，亦谪居之胜概也。彼齐云、落星，高则高矣；井干、丽谯，华则华矣，至(止)于贮妓女，藏歌舞，非骚人之事，吾所不取。吾闻竹工云：“竹之为瓦仅十稔，若重覆之，得二十稔。”噫!吾以至道乙未岁，自翰林出滁上，丙申移广陵，丁酉又入西掖，戊戌岁除日，有齐安之命，己亥闰三月到郡。四年之间，奔走不暇，未知明年又在何处， 岂惧竹楼之易朽乎! (幸)后之人与我同志，嗣而茸之，庶斯楼之不朽也。宣德元年岁次丙午秋八月初吉云间沈藻书
