The Blindness of Orion

Read "The Blindness of Orion" at The Eldritch Dark:

This poetic retelling of part of the Greek myth of Orion is fairly straightforward, and doesn't demonstrate many of the verbal flourishes that typically make even weaker poems by Clark Ashton Smith (CAS) worth the reading.  Not that it's a bad poem, but given that it's little more than a recitation of the story of Orion regaining his sight, CAS doesn't seem to have found many opportunities to really flex his creative muscles.
