Poniżej prezentuję kompletną listę wierszy jakie napisał H. P. Lovecraft wraz z omówieniem każdego z nich. Przy tworzeniu listy wsparłem się książką wydaną przez Night Shade Books pt. The Ancient Track: Complete Poetical Works of H.P. Lovecraft pod redakcją S. T. Joshiego. Wznowienie tej książki w 2013 przez Hippocampus Press jest obecnie najbardziej kompletnym wydaniem dzieł poetyckich Lovecrafta.
