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 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 Celephais.
Nobody matures, remaining forever innocent.

King Kuranes: King of Celephais,
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...
