There are many ways to do poetry study, my favorite way is by reading lots and lots of good poetry. We lean towards a Charlotte Mason style homeschool, so I always have good poetry books laying around. You can learn about a specific poet and read lots of their works or you can do a poetry study based on a specific theme.
I like to study themed poetry around the holidays and different seasons.

Poetry ties in very well with nature study as many seasonal poems speak of the nature around them. Nature themed poems are great to put into a nature journal as well! I also like reading the poem to my kids and then having them draw what they were feeling or imagining while they were listening to it.

Here are some of my favorite Spring themed poems to study this time of year:
