    For serious poets, I'd recommend...

    The Bible
    The Complete Works of William Shakespeare

    For everyone else, whatever you have will do.

    Only three?!

    Lets start with three books for meditation that everyone should by one's bedside:

    Sheldon Cheney (no, not those Cheneys!) , Men Who Have Walked with God

    Vivian de Sola Pinto and William Neill Wright, eds., The Tree of Life (an anthology of poetry and prose passages)

    Harold Bloom, ed., American Religious Poems (an anthology)

    as well as several good translations of that marvelous book of poetry, the Book of Psalms (e.g., " I will lift up mine eyes unto these hills. Whence cometh my help?" ;)
