To answer the title question:

Mel-O-Toons, with its theme song and stories of the Trojan Horse, Peer Gynt, David and Goliath, Christopher Columbus, Atalanta, etc.

from Captain Kangaroo: bits of classical music, "My Heart's in the Highlands," etc.

bits of Gilbert & Sullivan and Bach on my Mom's old LP's

Robert Louis Stevenson's A Child's Garden of Verses--many beautiful, haunting poems

Sidney Lanier's The Boy's King Arthur--not strictly written as poetry, but very poetic

Beatrix Potter's The Tailor of Gloucester

Now, if anyone wants to know about pictures that haunted me.... :-)
