"Along the shore the cloud waves break,
The twin suns sink behind the lake,
The shadows lengthen
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 thou, unsung, as tears unshed
Shall dry and die in
Lost Carcosa."

The King in Yellow -- Robert W. Chambers

The King in Yellow is a tragic figure. His goal is to rebuild his lost civilization. The tricky part is figuring out a way to do so without resorting to "imperialism" (for lack of a better term). Oh, and the color yellow is probably his world's equivalent to our purple (since it's associated with royalty).
