There are many summaries for poetry here at enotes.  Depending on which poems you are seeking, there are hundreds of summaries and critical examinations.  You may search for them here at enotes by both author or the title of the poem.  In some cases, the text of the poem is also provided and there are line-by-line summaries and analysis giving one interpretation of the work.

I have included some links to show you what is available here.  You may also simply search for the author's name and/or poem title in the search engine of your choice.  Your results may be a little sketchy, but most of the time you will be led to homepages of the poet where you will find additional insight on particular poems or collections of poetry.

Thanks for using enotes, and Good Luck!
