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.

Sing of my soul, my voice is dead,
Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed,
Shall dry and die in
    Lost Carcosa.

—“Cassilda’s Song” in The King in Yellow Act I, Scene 2
