In case you haven’t seen it, the German Department has a Poetry Corner on its website, featuring poems by Heiko Michael Hartmann, Zafer Senocak, Heinrich Heine and others. The site reads,

An epiphany, a bolt of spiritual lightning, an astonishing conceit, a fleeting insight, a lasting memory–great poetry is all this and more. A moment of social or personal crisis encapsulated in an ironic or moving phrase or a universal sentiment brought to life in musical language–a poem’s light touch or heavy rhythm can make your day. You can read it in a minute, yet savor it for a lifetime.

A really cool thing is that it’s interactive – anyone with suggestions for poems can contribute them, and work on the translation, and give an interpretation as well. Check it out!
