I found an interesting and inspiring article on Heidegger and poetry that I think some people will enjoy. I thought it well worth the time spent reading:

>>The Taste of Silence
by Adam Kirsch<<

And here is a link to one of the poems mentioned in the article:

Wallace Steven's The Man with the Blue Guitar:

The Mediadrome - The Man with the Blue Guitar

@Pythagorean,
"For Heidegger, more than any other philosopher, looked to poetry as a model of what thinking should be........He constantly dwelled on the mysteries of language and translation, how the way we name things can reveal and conceal their essence."

This is why I love Heidegger, who is himself a modern poet -- if you will accept philosophy, as I do, as a genre of poetry
