I'm not particularly fond of poetry (generally speaking, I hate it with a passion), but here are two poems that I do like:
First, Ode to Spot by Data (Star Trek: The Next Generation, episode "schisms"):
Felis catus is your taxonomic nomenclature,
An endothermic quadruped, carnivorous by nature;
Your visual, olfactory, and auditory senses
Contribute to your hunting skills and natural defenses.

I find myself intrigued by your subvocal oscillations,
A singular development of cat communications
That obviates your basic hedonistic predilection
For a rhythmic stroking of your fur to demonstrate affection.

A tail is quite essential for your acrobatic talents;
You would not be so agile if you lacked its counterbalance.
And when not being utilized to aid in locomotion,
It often serves to illustrate the state of your emotion.

O Spot, the complex levels of behavior you display
Connote a fairly well-developed cognitive array.
And though you are not sentient, Spot, and do not comprehend,
I nonetheless consider you a true and valued friend.

Next is a poem by Sam Schultz, from the "SciShow Tangents" podcast, on an episode about parasites:

I slipped right in your fishy mouth
Tongue was in the way so I cut it out.
now we swim the ocean blue
you attached to me, and me attached to you
I try to help you with my little arms
to capture food and not do much harm
but I must admit your blood is yummy
and I can't help but nibble things
going to your tummy
you're my best friend
I'll never leave you
but lately I've noticed
your skin is a pale hue
so if some day
we should have to part
I'll find a new mouth but
you'll always be in my heart
