Too much springs to mind here.

Two roads diverged in Duskwood
And sorry I could not travel both
But being five travelers, long we stood
And looked down one as far as we could
To ferns and jungle overgrowth…

When I was attending Lisgar Collegiate Institute in Ottawa they had a copy of the poem “In Flanders Fields” in the front hallway.  I thought this was a regular tribute until I stopped to read the fine print one day – the poet who wrote it had been a Lisgar student.  I thought that was kind of awesome.
