Do the High Elves have an anthem?

No. They are medieval type vassal based country without many symbols of statehood as they are currently defined in the modern world.

Any noteworthy songs or poems then? They must have had SOME art...

I've found this in HammerWiki, I hope it helps

Once each decade, the High Elves hold the Festival of Light to celebrate Aenarion and remember his sacrifice. At dawn on the day of the festival, each Elf recites this verse:

"Brother spoke the four as one, together we shall rule,
Surrender to the Darkness within your heart you know holds true.

In his hand the Sword of Khaine did promise power untold,
As God of Light and God of Murder battled for his soul.

One by one the Daemons fell and Elf Lord he stood tall,
For should he fail upon his task then mortal world would fall.

Upon the isle beneath the fight, wise mages cast their spells
And Daemon minions howled in anguish, cursed to eternal hell.

And on this day we bow our heads to he who world did save,
Aenarion the Proud Defender, Aenarion the Ever Brave."

One would assume there is plenty of that. Symbols of national unity would be much more rare. Each individual kingdom is bound to have some things of its own, but anything for Ulthuan as a whole would be less important. It's much more a confederation of nations than a nation made up of provinces.

Song and poems there will be enough I think. They are so universal that they are bound to have some. And any culture with enough free time (for at least part of the population) and enough education for significant parts of the population to be literate will be bound to have them written down. Both are the case for HE. So HE will have a lot of songs and poems.

There will probably be songs which show local variations between the different kingdoms. There will be local ones which pertain mainly to local events. And there will be ones which are kingdom wide. If I were to guess, then most of the nation wide ones will either be about the large victories (like the poem above about Aenarion) or about the everqueen. Both are universal enough symbols for HE.
