    Candy Man by Roald Dahl

    Who can take a sunrise, sprinkle it with dew. Cover it in chocolate and make a miracle or two. The candy man, the candy man can. The candy man can' cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good.

    I love that poem and it was also a song. Now I have it stuck in my head, lolo!

    I think the very first poem I read and later understood which then gave me my first appreciation for the power of poetry was Robert Browning's "My Last Duchess".

    I implore you to read it and mull over it before looking at the interpretation of it.

    I enjoy the collection "A Child's Garden of Verses" by Robert Louis Stevenson.

    Alexander Beetle by AA Milne. Except that isn't the name of it .... I think it's called forgiveness. I still love it!
    I found a lttle beetle, so that beetle was his name,
    And I called him Alexander and he answered just the same
    I put him in a matchbox and i kept him all the day
    And nanny let my beetle out,
    Yes, nanny let my beetle out
    She went and let my beetle out
    And beetle ran away..............

    I can't recall reading much poetry at a very young age, outside of the fabulous Dr. Seuss, but I became very interested in poetry in high school after reading e.e. cumming's 'i carry your heart with me.'

    When I was 9 years old, I saw this poem while riding a particular bus.  I was into princesses then, so it fascinated me.

    "She is not fair to outward view
    As other maidens be.
    Her loveliness I never knew,
    Until she smiled on me,
    Oh! then I saw her eye was bright,
    A well of love, a spring of light,

    But now her looks are coy and cold,
    To mine they ne'er reply,
    And yet I cease not to behold
    The love-light in her eye.
    Her very frowns are fairer far,
    Than smiles of other maidens are.
    ~ Hartley Coleridge (1746-1849)
