T title - read the title and make a prediction about the poem to help you get mentally involved with the poem
P paraphrase - read the poem and summarize what it is about
C  connotations - pick out the words that convey strong emotion
A audience - who might the author be speaking to
S shift  - where does the poem shift emotion and from what emotion to what
T theme - what is the life lesson
T title - review the title; what does it really mean; was your prediction correct?
You may use these step in any order that helps you, but you should complete the first T before you read and the last T after you have done the other pieces.
