    This is a tribute poem to Robert E. Howard the creator of Conan.

    This etext was produced from Weird Tales October 1936. Extensive
    research did not uncover any evidence that the U.S. copyright on
    this publication was renewed.


                               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.

       *       *       *       *       *

Doctrine Publishing Corporation provides digitized public domain materials.
Public domain books belong to the public and we are merely their custodians.
This effort is time consuming and expensive, so in order to keep providing
this resource, we have taken steps to prevent abuse by commercial parties,
including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.

We also ask that you:

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Doctrine Publishing
Corporation's ISYS search for use by individuals, and we request that you
use these files for personal, non-commercial purposes.

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort
to Doctrine Publishing's system: If you are conducting research on machine
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a
large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the use of
public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help.

+ Keep it legal -  Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for
ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just because
we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States,
that the work is also in the public domain for users in other countries.
Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we
can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of any specific book is
allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Doctrine Publishing
ISYS search  means it can be used in any manner anywhere in the world.
Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.
