The Soul of the Sea

Read "The Soul of the Sea" at The Eldritch Dark:

This short poem from Clark Ashton Smith (CAS) rewards multiple readings, since the author has really captured both the motion and the sound of what seems to be an almost gale-force wind emanating from the sea.  Characterizing that wind as "the soul of the sea" lends it all of the mystery and the dangerous scope of the wild ocean, a beautifully poetic concept.
