Read "Outlanders" at The Eldritch Dark:
This sonnet from Clark Ashton Smith (CAS) saw publication in the June 1938 issue of Weird Tales magazine, and the less said about the cover image (by Margaret Brundage) the better!
The poem itself is a beautiful celebration of outsider status, fueled by CAS' unique talent for invoking the weird and the other-worldly:
We gather, upon those gulfward beaches rolled,
Driftage of worlds not shown by any chart;
And pluck the fabled moly from wild scaurs:
Though these are scorned by human wharf and mart—
And scorned alike the red, primeval gold
For which we fight the griffins in strange wars.
That very last line of the closing sestet is very memorable - even in the short phrase "we fight the griffins in strange wars" CAS captures a whole world of adventure, discovery, and the fantastic.
