“Nightmare Lake, The“


“Nightmare Lake, The“
   Poem (66 lines); probably written in the fall of 1919. First published in Vagrant(December 1919). In “distant Zan” there is an ominous lake filled with dreadful creatures—lizards, snakes, ravens, vampires, necrophagi—but the final horror comes when the narrator realizes that the lake covers over a sunken city that contains still greater monstrosities.
