Both read love poems on the show, and Simpson’s got Cyrus particularly flustered because it was about her—and it was intense. The singer asked Simpson, whose poetry book Prince Neptune comes out next week, to read the love poem he wrote specifically about her, his girlfriend of six months. It was a lot. As Simpson prepared to read, Cyrus told him, “Did you see where Lili was reading her poetry, and I got all weird because I’m not good with mush?
I’m going to read it for you right now. All right. It goes: In the ancient night, she flies once more—”. Then Cyrus started having tech issues. I’m not distracting. Okay, go, go! In the ancient night, she flies once more back to her home in the stars. I try to chase her there but fall short because I cannot breathe up that high in the radiant heavens where she lingers.

A poem for the future is growing from the stones of a canal path in the center of an old Dutch city. The project was started in , but in order to pinpoint an easy start date, the first blocks were laid out and back-dated to January 1, Since its inception, every Saturday a stone mason has pulled the next stone from the border of the canal path, in order for the current poet to inscribe a letter.
It takes months, but words slowly begin to appear, and with each year the verses will continue to wind through the streets. The project is supported by the city, so with enough funding the poem will continue for as long as there are Saturdays, until the end of the future. The full text, so far, can be found here in the original Dutch. Roughly translated, in English it reads:. You have to start somewhere to give the past a place, the present is getting less and less.
The further you are, the better.
And people stayed at home And read books And listened And they rested And did exercises And made art and played And learned new ways of being And stopped and listened More deeply Someone meditated, someone prayed Someone met their shadow And people began to think differently And people healed. And in the absence of people who Lived in ignorant ways Dangerous, meaningless and heartless, The earth also began to heal And when the danger ended and People found themselves They grieved for the dead And made new choices And dreamed of new visions And created new ways of living And completely healed the earth Just as they were healed.

If you think you are beaten, you are; If you think you dare not, you don’t. If you’d like to win, but you think you can’t, It is almost a cinch you won’t.

The Divine Comedy , Italian La divina commedia , original name La commedia , long narrative poem written in Italian circa —21 by Dante. Divided into three major sections— Inferno , Purgatorio , and Paradiso —the narrative traces the journey of Dante from darkness and error to the revelation of the divine light, culminating in the Beatific Vision of God.
Dante is guided by the Roman poet Virgil , who represents the epitome of human knowledge, from the dark wood through the descending circles of the pit of Hell Inferno. At the summit of Purgatory, where repentant sinners are purged of their sins, Virgil departs, having led Dante as far as human knowledge is able, to the threshold of Paradise. There Dante is met by Beatrice , embodying the knowledge of divine mysteries bestowed by Grace, who leads him through the successive ascending levels of heaven to the Empyrean, where he is allowed to glimpse, for a moment, the glory of God.

Discover Poem With No End in Utrecht, Netherlands: ‘The Letters of Utrecht’ lays out a ribbon of poetry one letter at a time, with no final verse in sight.
The first volume, dedicated to Elisabeth and Karl von der Heydt was composed from to and was published in the same year by Insel Verlag in Leipzig. With the exception of eight poems written in Capri , Rilke composed most of them in Paris and Meudon. These poems, many of them sonnets , are often intensely focused on the visual. They show Rilke aware of the objective world and of the people amongst whom he lives. The poems are astonishingly concentrated: both short, and compacting a profundity of experience into small compass.
He called them Dinggedichte , which translated literally means “Thing-Poems,” intending to reveal both that the poems were about “things” and that the poems had become, so concentrated and whole in themselves were they, things poetic objects themselves. Along with The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge , the collection is considered to be the main work of his middle period, which clearly stands out from the work preceding and following it.
It marks a shift from the emotive poetry of ecstatic subjectivity and interiority, which somewhat dominates his three-part The Book of Hours , to the objective language of the Dinggedicte.
