Looking for suggestions - Poetry

I admit I know NOTHING about poetry. Sure I have some favorite poems from stuff I read in high school and college, but my tastes never really went toward poetry when I was a teenager. Now my 14 year old niece, Chicken, has expressed and interest. Mom asked me for suggestions and I've drawn a blank. Any ideas? I gave the girls some of the Shel Silverstein books a few years ago and they both liked them.

Other aspects of Chicken: She's a tomboy who plays catcher for her softball team and she just started work as the "salad girl" at an italian resturant.
