The Horologe

Read "The Horologe" at The Eldritch Dark:

This very short poem from Clark Ashton Smith (CAS) is rather foreboding, depicting as it does the relentless march of time.  The final line is quite striking with its image of "broken tombs and thrones."  There's not much of the joyous in "The Horologe", but it's hard to argue with the logic of the argument.
