About The Desiderata
The word “Desiderata” comes from the Latin meaning ‘desired things’.
The Desiderata was wrongly believed to have been written in 1692.
This date was just the foundation year of a Baltimore church where a copy of the poem was found.
The verse is by the American writer Max Ehrmann (1872–1945) who was not well known in his lifetime.
He became renowned after the publication of his verse in the 1970’s.
The Desiderata was authorised for publication without a copyright notice in the 1940’s.
This meant that copyright on the verse was forfeited and it was deemed to be in the public domain.
