The first argument of \startplacefloat takes the name of the float 
instance, e.g. figure (\startplacefloat [figure]) and the second 
argument a limited list of keys. All other options like the background 
color have to be set with \setupfloat and \setupcation.

You have to put the poem in a framed or framedtext environment with the 
setting width=fit. There is no way to to do this with the float 
environment alone.
