Poem-based games with puzzles/endings - an IFDB Poll

I enjoy seeing people trying to mix poetry and puzzles. Even if it doesn't work, it still is fun to see people try, and quite bluntly, it's brave to attempt at all.

I'd like to remove works like Phenomena or 100000 years from consideration for this poll, and games with just one poem as a puzzle are a bit borderline. But ones that have recurring poetry, even if it is not High Art, are very welcome.
