Can you omit the second occurrence of the word "poems" in a sentence like the following?

I like Lord Byron's poems, and also enjoy a number of Percy Shelley's [poems].

Yes, you can.

Also, extending @FumbleFingers' comment, you could even omit the first "poems":

I like Lord Byron's (and also enjoy a number of Percy Shelley's) poems.
