Echo of Memnon
Read "Echo of Memnon" at the Eldritch Dark:
This dream poem paints a languid portrait of the hours before dawn, as the narrator visits the famous "singing" Colossi of Memnon and witnesses the opening of water lily blossoms somewhere in the region of the Nile river. There's nothing in particular that stands out with this poem; it's competent but by no means a standout in Clark Ashton Smith's poetic corpus.
