how do I answer this question
I would have 3 main ideas about what the poem is trying to say, and make those into 3 paragraphs explaining them with evidence. for example one idea could be that the author is trying to convey that friends are more valuable than possessions, so you would explain how she presents that, and that would be one paragraph.

In general, the best thing to do with a poetry analysis question like that is to identify 3 literary / poetic devices you can find in the poem. These are effectively the ways through which the poet "presents ideas". Then, consider how the poetic devices (and their corresponding examples) relate to / communicate ideas related to living a happy and contented life.
