I wonder how many poems there are where Jeopardy! can quote non-title lines and reliably expect contestants to provide the name of the poet and/or poem. The list can't be terribly long.
Add on Omar Khayyam's Rubaiyat, maybe? "A jug of wine, a loaf of bread, and thou" has come up enough times over the years (at least, per the Archive) for me to count it. They asked about it earlier this year, in fact ($1200, Poet ID, Please). ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Definitely. That's a great addition. And "Water, water everywhere/ Nor any drop to drink" from Coleridge's Rime of the Ancient Mariner. That's another poem they keep going back to.

8. Old age should burn and rave at close of day;/ Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
Wait, this wasn't Michael Caine?
The best thing that Neil Armstrong ever did, was to let us all imagine we were him.

"Michael Caine," as everyone knows, is the stage name of the man born Maurice Joseph Micklewhite. Micklewhite also wrote poems under the name Dylan Thomas and has had a modestly successful career as a singer with the name Robert Zimmerman.
