You can find the answer to this question quite early on in Chapter 8.  The answer is that Minimus wrote the poem.  He is a pig who is seen as the best writer among the pigs on the farm.  The poem he writes in Chapter 8 is called Comrade Napoleon.

The poem is essentially a hymn to Napoleon.  By this point, all of the animals are being pushed toward adoring Napoleon as sort of a state religion, almost.  This is supposed to represent the way that Joseph Stalin was so admired and adored in the Soviet Union.
