Any recommendations for a book of poetry for an almost 12 year old?

DD is doing a sponsored readathon next week and needs to choose a book of poetry. Any recommendations please? I'm a bit stuck between Roald Dahl/Dr Seuss (too young) and Robert Browning (slightly too old? Am sure we studied it at that age but not sure DD will get it that well without guidance)

Thanks

Benjamin Zephaniah would be good.
