Well, that's quite easy to find on the internet, but not easy to answer because we do not know what kind of poetry or which epoch you like.

If you want to get to know the German Romanticism I'd recommend you to read some of Schiller, Eichendorff, Clemens Brentano, Heinrich Heine, Schlegel, ETA Hoffmann

And you can find pretty much everything here

Especially "Kennst du das Land, wo die Kanonen blühn?" https://www.deutschelyrik.de/kennst-du-das-land-wo-die-kanonen-bluehn.html

Goethe is one of my go to poets for German. He's fairly popular (as far as German poets can be popular)

I really like this https://www.welt-der-rosen.de/rosged/silesius.htm

edit: http://lechatsurmonepaule.over-blog.fr/article-angelus-silesius-63935759.html

This page is a nice overview http://www.asu.cas.cz/~bezdek/moje_stranky/die%20schoensten%20deutschen%20gedichte.htm

Here can you read twenty famous poems and hear some of them https://www.lyrikmond.de/gedichte-thema-4-99.php

This is a goldmine with a very comprehensive list of authors https://www.mumag.de/gedichte/

There the texts of many Lieder by Schubert (based on some of the best poets of his time) with French and English translation http://www.harmoniamundi.com/doc/2908750.61.pdf

Hope you find something you like :)

I'm not familiar with the contemporary scene, but four that spring immediately to mind are Goethe, Heine, Schiller and Hesse

To add a modern author to the growing list, Jan Wagner is probably worth mentioning.

For the sillier side of things, I'd mention Heinz Erhardt.

I also like Theodor Fontane.

You can listen to a lot of modern poets on https://www.lyrikline.org/en/home/ They read their own poems and sometimes there is a translation. My favourites: Ulf Stolterfoht and Steffen Popp.
