Vemana was a 14th century Telugu poet who composed numerous poems in Telugu in Aata Veladhi metre, which consists of 4 lines. They end with the signature line "Viswadhaabhi Raama Vinura Vema", literally, "Beloved of Vishwadha, listen Vema".

Vemana's poems were collected and published by C P Brown in the 19th century. His poems are of social, moral, satirical and mystical in nature. They deal with social problems, and sometimes propose solutions, too. He has written over 100 of them, and they are together called "Vemana Satakam".
