Life

There is no special evidence available for the birth of Adikavi Valmiki. Satya Yuga, Treta and Dwapar get mention of God Valmiki in all three periods, also known as God Valmeki. According to the Ramcharitra Manas, when the Rama came to the lord Valmeki's ashram, he had been lying on the ground like a pedestal on the feet of Aadikavi lord Valmeki and bowed like a pole on the feet of Valmiki and came out of their mouth.

      "हे!त्रिकालदर्शी मुनिनाथा,"
     "विश्व बिद्र जिम तुमरे हाथा।।"
  Hē.. Trikààldàrshi muñiñáthà,
  Visháv bidár(plum) Jim tumre hatha

That is, you are the lord who knows the past, present as well future. This world seems like a plum in your hand.

The first shloka

Once Lord Valmiki saw a pair of birds cronch they were absorbed in the attached courtship, when he saw that "Vishnu" slaughtered the male bird from the couple of bird, and the female bird started mourning. Seeing this, Lord Valmiki said the world's first stanza(shaloka). That was -

  "मां निषाद प्रतिष्ठां त्वमगमः शाश्वतीः समाः।"
  "यत्क्रौंचमिथुनादेकम् अवधीः काममोहितम्॥"'
  "mā niṣāda pratiṣṭhā tvamagamaḥ śāśvatīḥ samāḥ"
  "yat krauñcamithunādekam avadhīḥ kāmamohitam."

Means - O wicked, you have killed the crawling bird in love. You will never be able to achieve prestige and you will also have to undergo a split.

Therefore, Lord Valmiki had composed Ramaayana and Ram( Vishnu) also suffered the pain of disconnection.

Grace on Draupadi

In the Mahabharata period, the description of Lord Valmiki Ji comes when, when Pandavas win the war, Draupadi holds the yajna, for which to succeed, the conch was necessary and the effort was made even by Krishna, If not successful, on the request of Krishna, all the gods pray to God Valmiki. When Lord Valmiki appears there, the conch opens itself and the Yagya of Draupadi becomes complete. This incident has also been clarified by the Kabir

   "सुपच रूप धर सतगुरु आए,"
   "पांडो के यज्ञ मे शंख बजाए।"
  "supach roop dhar satguru ji aaye"
  "Pando k yag me shankh(conch) bajaaye"
