Dolor of Dreams

Read "Dolor of Dreams" at The Eldritch Dark:

This poem from Clark Ashton Smith incorporates several themes that are common to his poetic corpus: dreams, hints of the supernatural, suggestions of death.  Although the use of ephemeral images and narrative in this poem are quite appropriate to the content (it's about dreams, after all), that same fleeting nature makes it harder for me to connect with the poem and the author's intentions.
