The farmers dare to gladly share with all the neighborhood;

For now at last their fears have passed that harvest won’t be good.

(Excerpt from the prologue of the 9/11 Epic Poem)

The theme of a peaceful summer day is carried still further in this second half of stanza two as the neighborly genorisity of the farmers is emphasized. Unfortunately, the authenticity of this generosity can be challanged on the basis that it is only because the farmers have more than they need. The question remains: how generous would they be if a catastrophe hit them? Would they willingly experience hunger to keep others from starving to death?
