As a poet myself, I prefer to keep my poems shorter in length and many of them are micro-poems but there a few long poems out there that I can read and re-read.

In no particular order as I will be here all day deciding on the number 1 spot.
The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes*. I stumbled across The Highwayman online a long time ago. I love the storyline, the beats and repetitions work well.
Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge. What can I say? The drama of being out at sea, making one huge mistake. The curse of immortality.
The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe*. You can feel the narrator’s desperation and frustration.
The Listeners by Walter De La Mare. Suspenseful and atmospheric.
Tulips by Sylvia Plath*. The vulnerability when we are sick. Her acute attention to detail and her awareness of her surroundings.
I hope this list gives you some reading pleasure. Let me know in the comments what some of your favourite poems are.
