The imagination created with the speaker in the poem is used for meaning isolation. He long for a place where he can go and come back renewed to start over again. He says, "get away from earth awhile/ And then come back to it and begin over."

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
