Two Myths And A Fable

Read "Two Myths And A Fable" at The Eldritch Dark:

Clark Ashton Smith (CAS) also wrote a Spanish-language version of this same poem entitled "Dos Mitos y una fábula".

This poem is a bit of a curiosity, as it feels less "complete" than much of CAS' other published verse.  Each of the stanzas presents a scenario drawn from the legends of myth and fable, and yet CAS doesn't do a whole lot with that material other than the obvious allusions to the spirit of adventure and discovery.  Certainly a minor item from CAS' poetic corpus.
