A soldier very young lies open-mouthed Who is the soldier referred to here Narrate in your own words how the soldier lies in the valley

“A soldier, very young, lies open-mouthed,” Who is the soldier referred to here? Narrate in your own words how the soldier lies in the valley?

The last ten line of ‘Asleep In The Valley‘ give us a unique picture of a sleeping Soldier who lies open-mouth in the densen Undergrowth.Beneath his head the fern give him the comfort of a pillow. This face is faded. His feet are stretched among the flowers and smile is gentle and innocent like an infant. The humming insects don’t distrub his sleep. One hand rests on his breast. But the two red holes express that the warrior has been killed in horrible war, and not asleep.
