Why does the poet call harvests ?peaceful? and war as ?winters?? Please let me know the answer fast as i have my exam....please. From the poem "NO MEN ARE FOREIGN" Beehive

Dear student, 

In the poem, No Men are Foreign, harvests symbolise peace and war signify long winters. The poet calls war - long winter, because war means shortage of food, suspension or rather cessation of all kinds of creating activities, including cultivation. But in the absence of war, people work in fields, cultivate and produce crops that are essential for the sustenance of humans. That's why, the poet calls harvests peaceful, and war - long winters.
