How do i write out a reference for the following:

It is a poem (it has an author and date) in one of my books (the book cover has a different authors then the one in the poem)

this is what i think but i am not sure:

authors name (date). title. In title of book (edition). State: publisher

or should I also add the other authors ?

    If you are using MLA guidelines, go to this website

    and hold your cursor over CITING SOURCES in the left column and then click on Essay in a Collection. You are citing a poem in an anthology, so this is the form you'd use.

    APA doesn't seem to have a form for this type of reference, probably because APA is for social studies (sociology, psychology, etc.).
