Read "Temporality" at The Eldritch Dark:

Although this is a relatively straightforward love poem from Clark Ashton Smith (CAS), the temporal theme enhances the sense of refuge found in a lover's arms:

Though time runs on, and star nor sun may stay,
Your beauty is the maze of my delight,
Where I can lose the minutes in their flight
And know not when today is yesterday.

It's not one of CAS' best verses by any means, but the incorporation of passing time makes for an interesting take on a familiar subject.
