Lampman

Postby Grogie » Mon Nov 28, 2005 3:53 pm

I,ve enjoyed the poetry of the 19th century Canadian poet Archibald Lampman for quite a while. I discovered that his family name is also a noun. It refers to a person who takes care of the lamps in a mine or on a railway.

Somehow, this reminds me of one of Tom Lehrer's best songs....

Actually, that's a link I didn't know about. Interesting song origin!
