Some unbelievable poems I'd never read before: Coleridge's on Youth and Age; William Collins -- Written in the year 1746 (How sleep the brave). Say not the struggle naught availeth. To the Virgins, to make much use of time. The Indian Serenade.

I was amused by "On a Girdle."

Loved all of the Wordsworth.

While obviously this is not the definitive list of the greatest poems in English, it's hard to make a bad anthology of the best English poems.
