Francis Jammes (Tournay, Hautes-Pyrénées December 2 1868 - Hasparren, Pyrénées-Atlantiques) November 1 1938) was a French poet, from an ancient family. He spent most of his life in his native region of Béarn and the Basque Country and his poems are known for their lyricism and for singing the pleasures of a humble country life (donkeys, maidens). His later poetry remained lyrical, but also included a strong religious element brought on by his conversion to Catholicism.
