5th Grade Poetry Memorization?

We'll be doing ancient history & biology next year, so we'll have memory work from history(lists of names/dates) & science lessons, but I'd like some suggestions for poetry.

101 Famous Poems has a lot of solid selections. So does the classic "Harp and Laurel Wreath".

If you want a serious challenge, check out Horatius at the Bridge. Memoria Press has their 5th graders study it and some memorize, "The Churchill Challenge." My kids started it this year and are about 1/3 of the way through. We'll finish it, just on the slow boat- kwim. You can read about our Horaitus adventure here.
MP also now has a "medal" you can purchase to reward your kiddo if they complete it.
