No, your solution will look like this:

----- he first line
  |   The second line
  |
  |

Right? What I really want is something like:

----- he first line
  |
  |
  |
----- he second line
  |
  |
  |

How about this:

<style>
p.initial:first-letter {
   font-size:400%;
   float:left;
}
</style>

<p class=initial>The first line</p>
<p>The second line</p>
