The Leaving

By Hannah McAuliffe, 2nd Year,

Object No. 95. Emigrant's suitcase, 1950s
National Museum of Ireland - Country Life

Your suitcase your hold, 

So empty and old, 

Your suitcase you hold, 

Filled only with clothes.

You leave today,  

No time for farewell, 

Your suitcase you hold, 

A symbol of home.

Find happiness, life and love, 

Find sorrow, loneliness and fear.

Your suitcase you hold, 

So empty and old.

Hannah McAuliffe
