Among the Millet and Other Poems

by Archibald Lampman

EXCERPT:
The dew is gleaming in the grass,
The morning hours are seven,
And I am fain to watch you pass,
Ye soft white clouds of heaven.
Ye stray and gather, part and fold;
The wind alone can tame you;
I think of what in time of old
The poets loved to name you.
They called you sheep, the sky your sward,
A field without a reaper;
They called the shining sun your lord,
The shepherd wind your keeper.
Your sweetest poets I will deem
The men of old for moulding
In simple beauty such a dream,
And I could lie beholding,
Where daisies in the meadow toss,
The wind from morn till even,
Forever shepherd you across
The shining field of heaven.



Collected Poems 1995-2014

by Scott Ransopher

Poem. From the old French poeme, from the Latin poema, from the Greek poema, a derivative of the verb poeim meaning “to make, to create.” The word poem literally means “something created.” Poet. From the Greek poetes, meaning “maker.” Thus, the poet is the creator of the world of the poem. He or she has complete control of all the elements therein: anything can happen. It is through this power which the poet possesses as maker that each poem is rendered completely unique. Each poem, each created piece is the link between the unfettered and abstruse emotions of the poet and his or her conscious mind. Furthermore, once the poem is created and the emotions made more concrete, the words become to link between these emotions a rare connection between poet and reader, and through this connection the reader can experience events and emotions which may never have occurred in his or her life. This is the magic of poetry. –from the author’s note to Poems 2013
