Poetry: Can I use the phrase "A long-ago" for the shorter version of long time ago? Would it still make sense?

You can try anything you want in poetry . . . doesn't mean it will make sense to anyone but yourself.

It is simply 'long ago' without 'a' before it and without hyphen (dash). The other is 'a long time ago' with 'a'.
In other words, 'long ago' is not a noun.

Just say 'long ago' you don't need the indefinite article.

No, that doesn't make sense.
Just say "long ago."
