A key thing to remember is the anagram FLIRTS, each letter represents an aspect of the poem and ideally a paragraph of your essay in the exam (assuming the structure is the same for the new spec AQA and you need to compare two from the anthology.)

F: Form, is it a sonnet, a ballad? Are the number of lines significant? etc

L: Language Use, analyse a number of "neon" words and phrases used that have a particularly strong effect on the reader.

I: Imagery; does the poet use similes and/or metaphors for a particular effect? Is natural or artificial imagery used in the descriptive parts of the poem and what's the significance of this?

R: Rhythm and Rhyme; is there a particular syllabic structure to the poem? Is there a rhyme scheme or not? And why are these significant?

T: Tone, what kind of tone does the poem give overall? And why is this significant?

S: Subject; this is essentially the theme of the poem and what it's about, and why this is significant.

If you can do all these you'll get an A or A* dependant on your unseen.

No, you PEE in the FLIRTS.

PEE is the structure of the paragraphs while FLIRTS is the structure of the essay.

Hope that makes sense.

The essay goes like this:

Intro
Paragraph 1: F (PEE)
Paragraph 2: L (PEE)
Paragraph 3: I (PEE)
Paragraph 4: R (PEE)
Paragrpah 5: T (PEE)
Paragraph 6: S (PEE)
Conclusion

PEE just means point, example, explanation, it's just how you write a paragraph in an essay, FLIRTS is a specific way to structure poetry analysis essays, PEE applies to all essay subjects.
