Read "The Fanes of Dawn" at the Eldritch Dark:
Somehow, I'm not getting much out of this early poem by Clark Ashton Smith (CAS). It shares many characteristics with other of his early poems that I have enjoyed, but this one feels a little vague and hesitant. The imagery never acquires a solid feel, and even the line-ending rhymes feel a little forced. This poem was uncollected in CAS' lifetime, and I imagine the author didn't consider it a notable item in his own body of work.
