All that pongo said, and consider sending pieces that contrast, the equivalent of auditioning with a ballad and an uptempo if you were applying to music school. It sounds as if you are applying for poetry, true? In which case you have an opportunity to include a range of work if your verses are on the short side.
Re: [Mikaeltb] Writing Sample
Prose writers must often find their best work that fits in 20 pages, making it harder to incorporate more than one piece.
(Aside: not only do admissions people want to be blown away, but they also want to know how their program can help you grow as a writer. Including some goals for your writing in your statement of purpose is a good thing.)
