The Eldritch Dark


Read "The Eldritch Dark" at (no surprise here) The Eldritch Dark:


"Eldritch" is a wonderful adjective apparently beloved of both Clark Ashton Smith (CAS) and his correspondent H.P. Lovecraft.  And this sonnet is a perfect evocation of all that adjective entails, featuring a cascading series of supernatural sounds and images that culminate with a nearly perfect outro:


The night grows whole again....The shadows rest,
Gathered beneath a greater shadow's wings.
