The world of German lyric and poetry is very far-reaching. In recent centuries there have been literary epochs that have been characterized by special characteristics and artists. The oldest known German poems date back to the ninth century. These lines, written in Old High German, sometimes already contained end rhymes or bar rhymes. Today there are a variety of different types of poems such as sonnets, ballads or limericks. While at the beginning mainly church songs were written, later a higher variety of topics began. It is particularly popular in poems to write about women and love.
