His helmet now shall make a hive for bees;
And, lovers' sonnets turn'd to holy psalms,
A man-at-arms must now serve on his knees,
And feed on prayers, which are Age his alms:
But though from court to cottage he depart,
His Saint is sure of his unspotted heart.

Anyway, I'm running those lines back and forth and they're making less and less sense to me and this light is flickering off and on and I turn to Gibby, a friend of mine on the set who was just down below, and I said, 'Gibby, I think I have to get down,' and I put my hand on his shoulder and he said, 'Sure, Dick.' He really looked concerned and he started to help me down and that's the last thing I remember until I woke up on the floor, somebody had me in their arms.

What A Farewell to Arms means...
Saying goodbye to war, fighting, and weapons
There is a poem written by George Peel in the 1500's named "A Farewell to Arms", but it is not known if Hemingway was aware of this poem (but more on that later...)
Saying goodbye to his comrades' and loved ones' arms
HIS golden locks Time hath to silver turn'd;
O Time too swift, O swiftness never ceasing!

Quotes From 'A Farewell to Arms' by Ernest Hemingway

I do not laugh at your oaths nor jeer you;)
The President holding a cabinet council is surrounded by the great
Secretaries,
On the piazza walk three matrons stately and friendly with twined arms,
The crew of the fish-smack pack repeated layers of halibut in the hold,
The Missourian crosses the plains toting his wares and his cattle,
As the fare-collector goes through the train he gives notice by the
jingling of loose change,
The floor-men are laying the floor, the tinners are tinning the
roof, the masons are calling for mortar,
In single file each shouldering his hod pass onward the laborers;
Seasons pursuing each other the indescribable crowd is gather'd, it
is the fourth of Seventh-month, (what salutes of cannon and small arms!)
Seasons pursuing each other the plougher ploughs, the mower mows,
and the winter-grain falls in the ground;
Off on the lakes the pike-fisher watches and waits by the hole in
the frozen surface,
The stumps stand thick round the clearing, the squatter strikes deep
with his axe,
Flatboatmen make fast towards dusk near the cotton-wood or pecan-trees,
Coon-seekers go through the regions of the Red river or through
those drain'd by the Tennessee, or through those of the Arkansas,
Torches shine in the dark that hangs on the Chattahooche or Altamahaw,
Patriarchs sit at supper with sons and grandsons and great-grandsons
around them,
In walls of adobie, in canvas tents, rest hunters and trappers after
their day's sport,
The city sleeps and the country sleeps,
The living sleep for their time, the dead sleep for their time,
The old husband sleeps by his wife and the young husband sleeps by his wife;
And these tend inward to me, and I tend outward to them,
And such as it is to be of these more or less I am,
And of these one and all I weave the song of myself.
