How do I quote a poem in an essay?

I am doing a paper on the Agatha Christie book, "And Then There Were None," and I want to put the poem from the book in the essay. How do I format that?I guess what I am basically asking is: would the poem be formatted as if it is an entirely new paragraph?Btw, the poem is currently in the middle of a paragraph, so if the poem was formatted as a new paragraph, how would I handle that? Thanks
