Split your analysis up into paragraphs for different things e.g. themes, form and structure, language and imagery etc.
and make sure that you are constantly COMPARING the two poems, not just explaining one after the other, making comparisons is really important. Briefly summarise the main points at the end.

Hello again I'm going to take over this question too
In poetry it is all about the number of valid points you make and the depth of your analysis on these points.

In the comparison question:

Para 1- a short paragraph giving a basic comparison on two poems.
Para 2- in depth analysis of key points on one of the poems.
Para 3- in depth analysis of key points of a different poem but taken at a different view of the previous poem.
Para 4- Clear comparisons of both poems giving techniques the poets use to create their point of view.
Para 5- a short summary of some of the comparisons

If the single poem question:

The examiners look to give you marks on the structure of your answer and you get this by going through the text and quote in order. Start at the first stanza and give in depth analysis of key quotes then gradually work your way down the poem. Use pearl paragraphs or an equivalent to structure your answer (point, evidence, analysis, reader, link)

Hope this helps xx
