Ode to Light

Read "Ode to Light" at The Eldritch Dark:

This is the sixth ode that I have read so far by Clark Ashton Smith (CAS) in my more-or-less chronological journey through his poetic corpus.  For the most part, I have not been very impressed by the Odes ("Ode on the Future of Song" being an exception).  And sad to say, "Ode to Light" is not really working for me either, since it feels quite pedestrian and lacks the strong and musical voice that animates so much of CAS' best work.
