The King in Yellow by Grivetart The King in Yellow by Grivetart
"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

I have never heard of the author before before but between your rendition of the Yellow King and the presentation of the poem it was quite stirring. So, thank you for that.
