Late November Evening

Read "Late November Evening" at The Eldritch Dark:

This quintain from Clark Ashton Smith (CAS) brilliantly captures an autumn experience, and does so largely through aural cues: "I heard the clack and clatter" and "The noise of cymbals clashed by night".  That latter line is especially evocative of the particular magic of a windy fall evening.
