I also wish I could nail down one book that made me really enjoy reading poetry, because then I'd recommend it to everybody. It makes me sad that it seems like nobody reads poetry. (I want to add "anymore," but I'm guessing that nobody ever read it, and it's just a myth that people did.) I'm going to lie, though, and say that it was a copy of the Vintage selected works of W.H. Auden that I bought in my senior year of high school. It really drove home that poetry could be modern and relevant while still seeming like the thing you learned, in your childhood, that poetry is.
