The word the Paramaguru actually uses for "men of devotion" is the Tamil adiyars, meaning those who support the feet of the Lord with their head or those who are at the feet of the Lord.
Urdhvamulam adhahsakham asvattham prahur avyayam
Chandamsi yasya parnani yastam Veda sa Vedavit.
-Bhagavatgita, 15. 1
Literally, "same", "identical"
Vedic hymns like suktas are not regarded as constituting a "poetical work". Besides, the Vedic mantras were not "composed" but "seen" by the rsis.
