She is a Muslim.
He is black.
They are gay.

Yes, maybe they are.
But can we really describe people in one word?

For example look at me:
I am a Christian.
I am white.
I am straight.

But if…

Here - mother, for your sleeping children,
bedded on newspaper - -
ten baht for a bowl full of rice,
so they can see the morning.

Thanks, Ma´am. In the name
of my sleeping children
bedded on newspaper - -…

Sometimes my poor soul
is tumbling like a whipping bowl,
often I struggled and fall,
but always I was standing up,
because I want win the cup
and so I do not give up.

von Tilly Boesche-Zacharow

How often
were my
heart and soul
knocked from my hands.

How often
have I
picked up and freed
heart and soul
from the gutter´s debris –

to offer
both anew

At evening an old angler
greets us in rolled sleeves
and gestures past the lake he comes up from:
yonder long folds of earth rising.
Snow deep down the sides clear through June,
he says, proud like he’d…

von Oscar Wilde

The wild bee reels from bough to bough
With his furry coat and his gauzy wing.
Now in a lily-cup, and now
Setting a jacinth bell a-swing,
In his wandering;
Sit closer love: it was here I trow
I made that vow,…

von The Poems Land

Let’s start with a little experiment
Just to show what I really meant
Think of having a daughter
In the past six years you have raised her
She made a painting for you
And now what do you do?
In your eyes it is…

- To Reiner -
Stars are hanging
like glistening pearls
at the bosom of heaven.
The coat of the night
covers my bareness,
which is as pale
as the light of the moon.
Selene has lost her soul.…

Behold! 
Lighter than a draft I was.
Just your breath
made me tremble.
I turned around
toward your thoughts
and your glance
made me dance -
for you.

Übersetzung ins Englische von Erich Vio

If you came
deformed, a cripple,
I would hasten to open my door
to let you in.

If you came
despised, defamed and rejected,
I would receive you with joy in my…

My soul is courage flying like a dove.

My soul is wisdom and knowledge bursting like a horse galloping.

My soul is understanding like a puppy.

My soul is graceful like a dolphin swimming in the sea.

My soul sings like…

von Walt Whitman

O Captain! my Captain! our fearful trip is done;
The ship has weather'd every rack, the prize we sought is won;
The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and…

a morning breeze draws gentle ripples on the sea
dancing and glittering in the sun
at times more serious wrinkles
on the puckered surface indicate
strong deeper currents down below
moving unseen

A shout, a cry
and than he die.
Many others looked at him
but no one else helped poor Tim.
This happened in our Germany
and the others are so free.

von Mary Feen

Sometimes I feel I never could climb up a tree
and then I climbed up already three.
Sometimes I feel so tiny and small
like standing in front of a big wall.
Suddenly the wall is opening like a door,
and I see me…

When the clouds pass by
and the morning sun rises,
when the mountains stick out
and a pine me surprises,

when the bad rain has stopped
and the mist has gone away,
I enjoy the the wide view
and the peace…

von Alexander Zeram

Walkin' in the brooding heat
I feel as though l' s canned.
Walking through that desert
my thoughts are growing lame.
If the moon should rise again
and the sun could stay -
if a man made love all night…

So deeply rooted, high unfolded
So straight grown and yet devoted
In every tree, there breathes life
Just go to him with all your strife

Touch and lean on this old being
Take your time and sense and see him

I'm not sure what I am doing yet,
I just did not find my way, I think.
They talk a lot and they smile constantly.
Am I going to be a part of that?
Do I have to be the same
or could I change the rules a bit?

von Oscar Wilde

Two crowned Kings, and One that stood alone
With no green weight of laurels round his head,
But with sad eyes as one uncomforted,
And wearied with man's never-ceasing moan
For sins no bleating victim can atone,
And…

von Asja Aditi

In the middle
of nowhere
I'm standing
alone
Around me
the waves
do
bust
Around me
the wind
does
blow
I'm standing
still
I do not
sing
I do not

Sometimes I wanna be free
like an old wildlife tree.
Sometimes I never would be alone
like an once lonesome stone.
Sometimes I dreamed of a new world
where God is there and the streets are of gold

I don’t like it here under this rock;
No food, no drink, and I can’t even talk.

I died, and I wonder, "Perhaps as a fossil?"

A lady from Old Pasture Lane,
gained publicity and fame,
for she was an amateur sleuth,
eager to reveal the truth.

Miss Marple is astute and quirky,
clears murder cases tough and murky.
Her closest friend is…

I found you, helpless tree -
swaying and dancing in wind,
all the branches full of dreams
I could see
and many drops of dew on them.

When I saw you again
you were without life and destroyed,

Sweet, I blame you not, for mine the fault was, had I not been made of common clay
I had climbed the higher heights unclimbed yet, seen the fuller air, the larger day.

From the wildness of my wasted passion I had struck a better,…

Hear what a fool you’ve made of me: impelled,
I tune this corny sonnet to the chord
your silver bracelets tingled when you held
me in your arms. Encircled ears implored

for any help…

To that gaunt House of Art which lacks for naught
Of all the great things men have saved from Time,
The withered body of a girl was brought
Dead ere the world's glad youth had touched its prime,
And seen by lonely Arabs…

Let’s take a look at Nature’s way.
Breath the scent of nice fresh air,
Feel the breeze within your hair.

The grass will poke between your toes,
Smell the flowers with your nose.

Englische Gedichte (English Poems) sind schon von daher auch für deutschsprachige Leser und Interessenten an der Literatur und den Gedanken eines bestimmten Schriftstellers interessant, weil sie die Gedichte der englischsprachigen Autorinnen und Autoren im Original und unverfälscht wiedergeben. So manche der Übersetzungen von englischen Gedichten, die man im World Wide Web finden kann, wären vielleicht nicht im Sinne des ursprünglichen Autors gewesen und sind vielmehr eine Interpretation des Ursprungstextes, als eine Übersetzung. Noch schlimmer wird es, wenn englische Gedichte einfach durch einen der zahlreichen automatischen Übersetzer "geschickt" werden.

LiteratPro ist bemüht im Falle von englischen Gedichten, bei denen eine Übersetzung angeboten wird, auf autorisierte Übersetzungen zurückzugreifen. Die Kategorie "Englische Gedichte" beschreibt ansonsten ihren Inhalt schon über den Namen: Im Kern geht es hier - ungefiltert - um Gedichte, die in der englischen Sprache geschrieben wurden.
