Poetry is the most frequently used genre in Roma literature. Both modern poems and traditional ones, in some instances conceived as songs, appear in all variants of Romani and in the various national languages.
Numerous writers of modern poems have won prizes in their home countries. A comprehensive anthology of international Roma poetry in German translation appeared in 2018 under the title Die Morgendämmerung der Worte. Moderner Poesie-Atlas der Roma und Sinti [The Dawn of the Words. Modern Poetry Atlas of the Roma and Sinti], published by Die Andere Bibliothek (external link).
