Cassilda's Song

by Robert Chambers

[from in The King in Yellow, Act I, Scene 2]

Along the shore the cloud waves break,
The twin suns sink behind the lake,
The shadow lenghten
                                    In Carcosa

Strange is the night where black stars rise,
And strange moons circle through the skies,
But stranger still is
                                    Lost Carcosa

Songs that the Hyades shall sing,
Where flap the tatters of the King,
Must die unheard in
                                    Dim Carcosa

Song of my soul, my voice is dead,
Die though, unsung, as tears unshed
Shall dry and die in
                                    Lost Carcosa
