    They are asking you to explain how the imagery helps the reader understand what the poem is about.

    This is an excellent example of imagery.

    "The little waves, with their soft, white hands

    Efface the footprints in the sands,"

    This is personification of the waves. They want you to explain how this type of imagery would make clearer the meaning of the poem.
