Whether poetry is written with the intent that the ideal way to experience it is a recitation or a performance, or that neither is to be definitively preferred varies depending on the work.
Also, a poem that works well in performance is still more like the text of a play, which isn't defined by the "original version" the way that works of modern popular music usually are.
