I have written a very good book of poems and songs Called Soup for the Soul of the Servant available on Amazon in print and kindle. If you like faith based poems this is the book for you!! You will definitely get ideas for how to write poems from reading this book. May I also recommend joining poetrysoup.com to get ideas on writing poems. Hope this helps.

For future reference:

How does a poem mean? by John Ciardi.

This might strike the OP as odd, but I would suggest Robert Louis Stevenson's A Child's Garden of Verses. The tone is breezy throughout, the themes easy to appreciate, and most important of all, sound and rhythm are strongly emphasized.
