An Old Theme

Read "An Old Theme" at The Eldritch Dark:

This is another poem that Clark Ashton Smith (CAS) attributed to the pseudonym Christophe des Laurières.  That naughty Frenchman certainly has his share of pick-up lines:

Give me thy mouth to kiss,
Give me thy breasts to hold
Ere love's desire and love's delight grow old
And the last sun go down upon the last abyss.

Taken as a whole, the poems attributed to des Laurières are quite good.  It would be interesting to see them published together as a standalone collection.
