Hello there, Mr. Laurel. When answering questions on poetry, you should always discuss:

-The Poets style (what makes it theirs? Are there any stuctures they use for effect?)

-The views the poet expresses in the poem (What is the poet trying to say? How does the poem say these things for the poet?)

-The themes and interests of the poem (What is the poem about? What is it talking about, and why?)

Hope this helps!
