Cthulhu Mythos poem.

A seaport in the land of Ooth-Nargai,

Being build of sky-blue marble;

Topped by slender minarets.

 

Bronze statues of famous heroes,

One page topped from Al-Azif.

In the center of the Temple to Nath-Horthath,

Where eighty orchid-wreathed Priests serve,

No less than ten thousand years old art they.

 

The greatest trading center in the Dreamlands,

Creatures of all sort in their bazaars.

As in Sona-Nyl, there being no time,

Nobody ever ages, dreamers aloft

In the taverns of Celephaïs.

Nobody matures, remaining forever innocent.

 

King Kuranes: King of Celephaïs,

Lost his life through drug addiction.

Living forever in the Dreamlands,

In the Palace of Seventy Delights,

Built of flawless rose-crystal.

 

Past the eastern gate is a park,

Wherein the King build a Norman Abbey

And a small Cornish fishing village,

To resemble his native Cornwall,

To which he can never return,

Now that his waking form is dead...
