Poetry springs from imagination roused by emotion,and is expressed in music and imagery.
In poems we should look for....
What is  it all about? What is the subject? what does the poet say about the subject?

use of words is called imagery.A poet can create or suggest beautiful sight-effects as well as beautiful sound-effects, by means of words.
