we have done this before in class but when i'm on my own i can't annotate poems as i don't understand them is there any way of helping annotate these poems without help?

When you first see the poem, annotate what you see first, like the use of repetition, caesuras or any other techniques you can easily recognise. After that, maybe comparing your poem to a poem you have already annotated could help, as you can see if there is anything similiar in form, structure or language that you can use to annotate your poem
