The Complete Poetry of H. P. Lovecraft

    Are bridges of pure alabaster,
    White bridges all cunningly carven
    With figures of fairies and daemons.
    Here glimmer strange suns and strange planets
    ninuca beymembuat kutipantahun lalu
    A faint, veiled sign of continuities
    That outward eyes can never quite descry
    ninuca beymembuat kutipantahun lalu
    A tenuous aether, indeterminate,
    Yet linked with all the laws of time and space
    ninuca beymembuat kutipantahun lalu
    But now I knew that through the cosmic dome
    Those rays were calling from my far, lost home.
    ninuca beymembuat kutipantahun lalu
    The evening star—but grown a thousandfold
    More haunting in this hush and solitude.
    It traced strange pictures on the quivering air—
    Half-memories that had always filled my eyes—
    Vast towers and gardens; curious seas and skies
    Of some dim life—I never could tell where.

    I saw it from that hidden, silent place
    Where the old wood half shuts the meadow in.
    It shone through all the sunset’s glories—thin
    At first, but with a slowly brightening face

    he great hill hung close over the old town,
    A precipice against the main street’s end;
    ninuca beymembuat kutipantahun lalu
    us as we bore off our slender spoil,
    And when we scanned it in our darkened tent
    We struck a match to test the ancient oil.
    It blazed—great God!… But the vast shapes we saw
    In that mad flash have seared our lives with awe.

    “Here was your home,” he mocked, “when you had sight!”
    ninuca beymembuat kutipantahun lalu
    That Nameless One to whom a thousand smokes
    Rose, aeons gone, from unclean towers up-piled.
    I saw the body spread on that dank stone,
    And knew those things which feasted were not men;
    I knew this strange, grey world was not my own,
    But Yuggoth, past the starry voids—and then
    The body shrieked at me with a dead cry,
    And all too late I knew that it was I!

    On the Vanity of Human Ambition

    Apollo, chasing Daphne, gain’d his prize
    But lo! she turn’d to wood before his eyes.
    More modern swains at golden prizes aim,
    And ever strive some worldly thing to claim.
    Yet ’tis the same as in Apollo’s case,
    For, once attain’d, the purest gold seems base.
    All that men seek ’s unworthy of the quest,
    Yet seek they will, and never pause for rest.
    True bliss, methinks, a man can only find
    In virtuous life, & cultivated mind.

    The place was dark and dusty and half-lost
    In tangles of old alleys near the quays,
    Reeking of strange things brought in from the seas,
    And with queer curls of fog that west winds tossed.
    Small lozenge panes, obscured by smoke and frost,
    Just shewed the books, in piles like twisted trees,
    Rotting from floor to roof—congeries
    Of crumbling elder lore at little cost.
    I entered, charmed, and from a cobwebbed heap
    Took up the nearest tome and thumbed it through,
    Trembling at curious words that seemed to keep
    Some secret, monstrous if one only knew.
    Then, looking for some seller old in craft,
    I could find nothing but a voice that laughed.
    II. Pursuit
    I held the book beneath my coat, at pains
    To hide the thing from sight in such a place;
    Hurrying through the ancient harbor lanes
    With often-turning head and nervous pace.
    Dull, furtive windows in old tottering brick
    Peered at me oddly as I hastened by,
    And thinking what they sheltered, I grew sick
    For a redeeming glimpse of clean blue sky.
    No one had seen me take the thing—but still
    A blank laugh echoed in my whirling head,
    And I could guess what nighted worlds of ill
    Lurked in that volume I had coveted.
    The way grew strange—the walls alike and madding—
    And far behind me, unseen
