From the clip "First poem/poet you fell in love with":

Spellbound by Emily Bronte – but Ed Hirsch thought it was by his grandfather.
Mother goose...
Dylan Thomas
The Highway Man, by Alfred Noyes:
Gertrude Stein, a Rose is a rose...
Asbery: Flowchart

My first poem was probably John Masefield’s “Sea Fever”
or Walter de la Mare, ‘Some One ‘

The rhythms and sounds captivated me.
