The format to follow is similar to a book chapter citation, for example, a poem from the edited collection, Seven Centuries of Poetry in English would look like this:
3. Seamus Heaney, "The Railway Children," Seven Centuries of Poetry in English, ed. John Leonard, 5th ed (South Melbourne: Oxford University Press, 2003), lines 7-8.
5. Heaney, "The Railway Children," 11.
Note: you can omit "line" or "lines" from the shortened footnote as long as the numbering you're using has been explained in the first footnote.
Heaney, Seamus. "The Railway Children." Seven Centuries of Poetry in English, edited by John Leonard. 5th ed. South Melbourne: Oxford University Press, 2003.
