The Document Margins are set only once per document, but you can set Layout Margins to modify the Document Margins within the document. At the end of the first page, Insert > Margin Break. On the second page, set Layout Margins to further narrow your working area.
Layout Inspector, Layout tab, Layout Margins.

Thanks for helping.
My version of Pages'09 does not have the choice of "Insert>Margin Break." There's section, page, layout and column breaks that can be inserted, but no "margin."
When I get to the second page, how do I set the layout margins for pages 2 onward?

After inserting "layout break," I followed your subsequent instructions, but something goes awry. The layout margins will not decrease the size of the margins, only increase them. Do you know what the problem might be?

The limit is set by the Document Margins. The Layout Margins can only broaden them. How about setting the Document Margins at the smallest margin setting you anticipate for the entire document and making up the difference, wherever required, with Layout Margins? Wherever you wish to change the margin, Insert a Layout Break.

Rephrasing Jerrold's reply.
The layout options are nested inside each other, like Russian dolls.
If you want anything larger, make the larger text area the Document Margin default, then inset inside those with regular Paragraph Insets on the left or right and/or Layout Margins for the rest of the material.
