Thinking About Poetry

So nigh is grandeur to our dust
So near is God to man
When duty whispers low "Thou must,"
The youth replies "I can"
-Ralph Waldo Emerson 

Today I was looking for poem. For my English class I need a 15-30 line poem with rhyme and rhythm, written by a well known poet. I have been reading every poetry book in my house, which  I will admit is not very many, and scouring the internet. Every poem that I like is either too long or too short for this project, which is proving to be very difficult. Above would be my favorite poem, which is of course too short. Do you have any favorite poems to suggest?
