How you cite a poem depends upon what citation style you are using. I am going to assume you are using the MLA style. There are no specific guidelines in MLA to cite a poem. Instead, cite the poem in the context in which you found it. For example, if you are citing a poem from a book, use the chapter of a book form to correctly cite the poem. If you are citing a poem from a web site, use the web site format.
