I think most of our truly greatest poets are our songwriters!
Let's see - Joni Mitchell - absolutely
Also - Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon
Lots more - who do you think?
If you look in your old college English Lit anthology, you'll see that the first English poems in it are old ballads! Poetry has been set to music probably as long as there has been poetry and music!
What makes it particularly a poem in my (very humble) opinion, is if the words can stand by themselves without music to carry them.
