The Dream-God's Realm

Read "The Dream-God's Realm" at The Eldritch Dark:

There's a real musicality to the language of this early poem by Clark Ashton Smith.  Although the general idea is pretty straightforward, some of the pieces that contribute to the whole are quite memorable.  The phrase "on my vision leapt a marvelous sight" particularly stands out, with the strong verb "leapt" giving a touch of forward momentum to the last lines of the poem that ends so pleasantly in "The Dream-god's sunlight-drenched, enchanted land."
