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:

First footnote:

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. 

Subsequent footnotes:

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.

Bibliography:

Heaney, Seamus. "The Railway Children." Seven Centuries of Poetry in English, edited by John Leonard. 5th ed. South Melbourne: Oxford University Press, 2003.
