Song to Oblivion

Read "Song to Oblivion" at The Eldritch Dark:

This strikes me as a somewhat workmanlike poem from Clark Ashton Smith (CAS).  It touches on themes that are central to his artistic concerns, the language is clear and perhaps even clever, and there is an interesting use of rhyme and line lengths across these three stanzas.  Nonetheless, it's mediocre when compared to CAS' more significant achievements in poetry.
