* "The Owl and the Pussycat" by Edward Lear; read by John Lithgow.
* Sonnet XVIII by William Shakespeare; read by Jeffrey Wright.
* "How Do I Love Thee?" by Elizabeth Barrett Browning; read by Gwyneth Paltrow.
Other poets covered are Robert Louis Stevenson, Woody Guthrie, William Carlos Williams, Langston Hughes, Gertrude Stein, Federico Garcia Lorca and more. Between each segment, children ages 4-9 will offer commentary.
The show premieres at 5:30 p.m. tomorrow on HBO, with the DVD available April 17.
