I actually used to use Love That Dog to teach poetry with 3-5 graders. It's a good jumping off point.

Yeah, even I've been tempted to try out some poetry after reading it!

A good starting point is to listen to Garrison Keillor's Writer's Almanac. You can find it online, and there's a poem read at the end of each day's broadcast. Or Billy Collins' Poetry 180.
