Poetry Book by Clark Ashton Smith on Gutenberg

I always thought Clark Ashton Smith was unfairly omitted from Appendix N. He gave D&D the Geas spell and his Zothique stories essentially gave rise to the language and themes of Jack Vance's Dying Earth tales.

But before he wrote short stories, he wrote poetry, another volume of which, Ebony & Crystal is now available on Gutenberg (along with The Star Treader)

Personally, I don't really like poetry (though I did like Data's poem about his cat). But still, worth a look, I think.
