The second stanza presents the picture of the burning of coach-grass which is harmful for agricultural work. Smoke rises from the heaps of grass.

The third stanza offers a picture of love-making. Two young lovers come along in the village path, whispering words of love to each other.

War brings break of normal courses of life. It breaks nations and changes dynasties. Yet, in the midst of destruction, some primary human activities will continue for ever. People will forget war in a short time. Nothing can destroy the flow of life.
