In our opinion the title of this poem indicates a moment when the world at peace. There is no war and no hardship. It seems like a happy poem.
Stanza 1. Soldiers are used to holding guns. They may have forgotten how it feels to hold someone they love.
Stanza 2. Soldiers' feet are so used to war and death that a bubble bath seems unfit.
Stanza 3. Since war is so fast-paced, soldiers will have a hard time adjusting to a slow pace of everyday life.
Stanza 4. How do soldiers pull away from the mentality of war? its become a part of them because they are so used to it.
Stanza 5. Are soldiers ready for a sight other than war?
Change in body parts to describe different problems (symbolism)
Confirms part of initial prediction
Contrast between war and peace, repercussions of war on soldiers, damaged when they come home
