Read "A Meeting" at The Eldritch Dark:
This melancholy poem from Clark Ashton Smith (CAS) is perhaps not one of his best, and yet there is still a touch of magic within:
But not too heavily the burden weighs,
While your sweet gaze
Lingers upon me like a tranquil light,
And all the murmured music of your voice
Becomes an echo for the songless days.
It's a powerful romantic theme, rendered in muted colors. Even one of CAS' less notable poems has its rewards.
