The voice of the peasants dream, The cry of the wind on the wooded hill, The leap of the fish in the stream. Quiet and love I sing The earn on the mountain crest, The cailin in her lovers arms, The child at its mothers breast. Beauty and peace I sing The fire on the open hearth, The cailleach spinning at her wheel, The plough in the broken earth. Travail and pain I sing The bride on the childing bed, The dark man labouring at his rhymes, The ewe in the lambing shed. Sorrow and death I sing The canker come on the corn, The fisher lost in the mountain loch, The cry at the mouth of morn.

About the Author:

Joseph Campbell was an American author and teacher best known for his work in the field of comparative mythology. He was born in New York City in 1904, and from early childhood he became interested in mythology. He loved to read books about American Indian cultures and frequently visited the American Museum of Natural History in New York, where he was fascinated by the museum s collection of totem poles. Campbell was educated at Columbia University, where he specialized in medieval literature, and, after earning a master s degree, continued his studies at universities in Paris and Munich. Throughout his life, he traveled extensively and wrote prolifically, authoring many books, including the four-volume series The Masks of God, Myths to Live By, The Inner Reaches of Outer Space, and A Skeleton Key to Finnegans Wake. Campbell died in 1987. In 1988, a series of television interviews with Bill Moyers, The Power of Myth, introduced his views to millions of people.
