So true! It is pleasure also to aaptrke in the bounty rewarded to the
patient and reverent hunter. He, too, experiences that intimate connection
with his food, as does the family he provides for. I learned this as a
child helping to process the game. It was an honor to grow up this way. It
taught me everything I know, love, and respect about nature.

well its not that weird because the friend died at a younger age and the
other guy died at an older age. the dead don't grow older as they die
because time is erelevent so to us he's been eating peaches this whole time
but because time is erelevant the friend has no idea how long he has been
dead

I am doing this poem for my homework, i do not quite understand it but
think that it is rather strange. He is saying that his friend iss dead but
he asks him how he is,he says he is eating peaches, wierd eh?
