I've always been afraid of poetry.  But guys like Shel Silverstein and Pablo Neruda and Billy Collins (just learned of him today) make it more approachable for me and even enjoyable. 
When you get a poem [in a public place], it happens to you so suddenly that you don't have time to deploy your anti-poetry deflector shields that were installed in high school.” (Billy Collins)
Check out Billy Collins' TED Talk.
