A thematic poem is a poem containing a theme or thematic statement. A theme is basically what the main topic of the poem is, for examle a theme in Romeo and Juliet is love. A thematic statement is a message that the author is trying to send his/her readers through the poem. For example, a thematic statement in Romeo and Juliet is that love can always overcome hate.
