Away from Home are some and I—

Emily Dickinson

Away from Home are some and I—
An Emigrant to be
In a Metropolis of Homes
Is easy, possibly—

The Habit of a Foreign Sky
As Children, who remain in Face
The more their Feet retire.

    This poem makes me think about leaving home for college or moving to a new city. It captures the uncertainty and the fear of the unknown pretty well. I find its abstractness oddly comforting.
