Book description
The Amazon product descriptions currently below refer to slightly different editions of Shakespeare's Poems.  The edition in the Arden Shakespeare series - ISBN 0416 278701 (and other numbers in later reprints) - is that first published by Methuen, London, in 1960.  

Contents
• Introduction - The poems; the text.
Venus and Adonis
Lucrece
The Passionate Pilgrim
The Phoenix and the Turtle
• Appendices - selections from: Golding's 1567 translation of Ovid's Metamorphosis; Chaucer's Legende of Good Women; Painter's Pallace of Pleasure; and Ovid's Fasti.

This edition has been reprinted in paper back many times in several different jacket styles to match the changing look of the Arden Shakespeare series. 

There is a companion volume of "The Sonnets" in the same series.
