    We share the exact same name. The date of his death Jume 15 1844, is exactly 122 days to the day of my birth June 15 1966. I found him when I googled my name one day. I am also a poet.

    Thomas, I do believe you have great potential! The way you set a picture in the audience's mind; it is absolutely exquisite.

    When I first read his poem A Soldiers Dream I thought it was about WW1, but then realised the book it was in was published in 1834. But it could be ANY war.

Best Poem of Thomas Campbell

Lord Ullin's Daughter

A chieftain, to the Highlands bound,

``And fast before her father's men
Three days we've fled together,
For should he find us in the glen,
My blood would stain the heather.

``His horsemen hard behind us ride;
Should they our steps discover,
Then who will cheer my bonny bride
When they have...

Last Man, The

All worldly shapes shall melt in gloom,
The Sun himself must die,
Before this mortal shall assume
Its Immortality!
I saw a vision in my sleep
That gave my spirit strength to sweep
Adown the gulf of Time!
