Even though his political choices were quite questionable, he is one of the most influential philosophers of the 20th century. He was very much influenced by philosophy and it would have been very hard not to, given the time. When he was studying theology, his best friend was Hegel himself.
So his background in philosophy created a new world for his poems. But he had a tragic life. For fully understanding the phrase we need to first have a look at the etymology of the word poetry.
Like the plummeting of a waterfall when the snow begins to melt. Or like the coming out of a butterfly from a cocoon. A threshold occasion : something moving away from its standing as one thing to become another. Also like the night, gathering at the close of the day. But through questioning the coexistence of these two, we can actually conclude that not even they can coexist, but they also carry each other. Poetry is what really lets us to dwell.
How do we dwell? We dwell by building, and building is a poetic creation. By thinking in this manner we can arrive at the nature of the poem. But to claim that we have concluded in something, we must use the language. Which can only happen if we respect the language. At this part of the text there was a quote that I really liked:. Because poetry is something from the world of fantasy. But actually, it is something that brings the unknown in the fantasy, to reality.
Like glancing up at the sky. The glance passes aloft toward the sky but it is still something of the earth. This glance spans the between of the sky and the earth. Just like the opposing above and below belonging to each other; he sees contrasting things as a whole.

Sky’s The Limit… Or is it? About “Poetically Man Dwells”by Martin Heidegger
Heidegger and the Poetic Human Dwelling
Does not all dwelling remain incompatible with the poetic? Our dwelling is harassed by the housing shortage. Even if that were not so, our dwelling today is harassed by work, made insecure by the hunt for gain and success, bewitched by the entertainment and recreation industry. But when there is still room left in today's dwelling for the poetic, and time is still set aside, what comes to pass is at best a preoccupation with aestheticizing, whether in writing or on the air. Poetry is either rejected as a frivolous mooning and vaporizing into the unknown, and a flight into dreamland, or is counted as a part of literature. And the validity of literature is assessed by the latest prevailing standard.
In Being and Time , 1 which is the major work of the early phase of his writings, Heidegger explores what he calls being-in-the-world of Dasein i. He points out that metaphysical philosophizing in the West historically failed to consider this fundamental aspect of the Being of the human being; that is, the human being first finds itself in a general horizon called the world and only secondarily deals with what is within the world, that is, self, things and people.
