I have an interested in short songs/poems in the texts (such as Milarepa's). Does anyone have other traditional Tibetan teachings in poetic verse or in song, they really like?

Lord Jigten Sumgön's Song on the Fivefold Mahamudra is pretty amazing. The metaphors, in particular, are quite evocative.

The following PDF includes the text in Tibetan, English, Mandarin (Chinese), and Korean:
