Henry Beck Hirst (August 23, 1813 – March 30, 1874) was a poet from the United States.
Hirst was born in Philadelphia. He studied law, but was not admitted to the bar until 1843, his studies having been interrupted by mercantile pursuits.

He afterward wrote A Poetical Dictionary, or Popular Terms illustrated in Rhyme (Lenox, Massachusetts), The Coming of the Mammoth, and other Poems (Boston, 1845), Endymion, a Tale of Greece (1848) and The Penance of Roland (1849).
