Can you help me understand this English question?

Poets often use different literary terms in their poems (metaphors, similes, imagery, etc). Read the three poems you chose again, and find at least two literary devices in each. Give examples of the devices used. How do you think that the literary devices aid the poet in expressing his or her thoughts? For whom do you think that this poem was written (audience)? What would you say are the themes of the poems, and what do you think that the poet trying to say through the entire poem?
