Read "Illumination" at The Eldritch Dark:
This sonnet from Clark Ashton Smith (CAS) is resplendent with the power of love to reanimate the recipient:
A little harsh beneath my pillowed face;
The savor of your bosom and the scent;
Your warmth, a blissful essence immanent,
Flooding my veins in the long unstirred embrace;
I'm often resistant to the charms of CAS' love poems; likely a combination of the inherent clichéd nature of romantic poetry and my own dour personality. But "Illumination" wins me over with sheer beauty and heartfelt appreciation for the ability of one human being to uplift another.
