POETRY OF THE SAINTS
Image source link: publicdomainvectors.org
It is quite normal for lovers to write poems for or about their beloved. Saints are no different. Although not all saints have written poetry, there are some who have ventured to express their feelings and fervor in verse. Unfortunately, the beauty of a poem is often diminished when translated into a different language. Yet, the poem is not intelligible at all to someone who is not familiar with the original language of the poem. Therefore, the poems on this webpage will give the poems of each saint both in their original languages and in English translation.
