What are some good words to describe a poem?

I need to write a descriptive review of a poem and need help with the language to use.

Kinetic, intensive, fragrant, use words that describe the feeling the poem gives you. Consult Roget's Thesaurus to help you express yourself without repetition. If the poem is good, it should, of itself, suggest words to you based on what images and emotions the poem evokes in you.

If you are going to discuss a poem, you'll want to comment on the meter (or lack thereof) and the arrangement of lines and stanzas. You may want to talk about the imagery and the voice or tone of the work as well. Also, think about the concept behind it.
