Icon5 Poetry How-To

So, I'm thinking I should expand my writing horizons and attempt some poetry. The only time I have written poetry was in school (jr. high, elementary). I am needing some help on how to get started in trying to write a poem. Any help, suggestions are welcome. TIA!

Death comes sweeping through the hallway/Like a ladys dress
Death comes driving down the highway/In its sunday best
A fire of unknown origin/Took my baby away

just write, submit it to us for ridicule, I mean critique and we'll point you in all the right directions assuming you don't naturally face that way.
A Girl in Winter.
His lips parted, cracked and dry as he struggled to whisper: "My muse, you're here."
She simply smiled, "Yes, Drake, I am here."
