To the great misfortune of Dr. Caldeira, when this reader hears the words “global warming” and “climate manipulation” her first response is to tune it all out. Regrettably, there comes a time when even a self-proclaimed cynic must put all former prejudices aside and is expected to (open mindedly, mind you) acknowledge such subject matter in the form of an article, Dr. Caldeira’s article to be specific.

Like Away Bound Train it has a theme of travelling in a train as the journey. There is no extended metaphor but rather the journey of soldiers to their old towns and communities. The idea of encountering new people is relevant to this journey poem as the people that they encounter are not new but instead it is them, the soldiers, who have changed and are new. “Old terrors doze” shows how the soldier’s journey home has changed them from what they were. I also believe that the soldier’s are going to see the old towns and communities differently upon their return.
