Annotate the poem itself. You need to have contextual factors about the poet and the time he was writing in. And have noted down the key themes and how they are portrayed. Also make sure you have some key quotes to hand that you can easily remember.

  • Context
  • Themes
  • Analysis (identifying techniques and meaning in each line)
  • Form and structure
  • Rhyme scheme (if any)
  • Meter
  • Key quotes
  • Related poems
Probably missing something, but that's all I can think of at the moment.

Well i assume that this is for English 9-1, if so then definitely get this book. AQA Anthology of Poetry (CGP) The Poetry Guide For the Grade 9-1 course. Buy it for your poem collection like mine is power and conflict. This is very useful as it already gives annotated poems and context and the other stuff that people said.
