    We have on of his earlier works entitled simply Campbell..1883 worth anything?

    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

River Of Life, The

The more we live, more brief appear
Our life's succeeding stages;
A day to childhood seems a year,
And years like passing ages.

The gladsome current of our youth,
Ere passion yet disorders,
Steals lingering like a river smooth
Along its grassy borders.

But as the careworn cheek grows wan,
And sorrow's shafts fly thicker,
Ye stars, that measure life to man,
Why seem your courses quicker?

When joys have lost their bloom and breath,
And life itself is vapid,
Why, as we reach the Falls of Death
Feel we its tide more ...

Lord Ullin's Daughter

A chieftain, to the Highlands bound,
Cries, ``Boatman, do not tarry!
And I'll give thee a silver pound
To row us o'er the ferry!''--

``Now, who be ye, would cross Lochgyle,
This dark and stormy weather?''
``O, I'm the chief of Ulva's isle,
And this, Lord Ullin's daughter.--
