R.E.H. by Robert Hayward Barlow

R. E. H.

_Died June 11, 1936_

By R. H. BARLOW

* * * * *

Conan, the warrior king, lies stricken dead Beneath a sky of cryptic stars; the lute That was his laughter stilled, and sadly mute Upon the chilling earth his youthful head. There sounds for him no more the clamorous fray, But dirges now, where once the trumpet loud: About him press old memories for shroud, And ended is the conflict of the day.

Death spilled the blood of him who loved the fight As men love mistresses, and fought it well-- His fair young flesh is marble where he fell With broken sword that vanquished all but Night; And as of mythic kings our words must speak Of Conan now, who roves where dreamers seek.
